Frommer's DC

Recommended Posts

Frommer's says, if crowds turn you off, consider visiting Washington at the end of August, or early September, when Congress is still "out" and families return home to get their children back to school, or between Thanksgiving and mid-January, when Congress leaves again and many people are ensconced in their own holiday-at-home celebrations. Hotel rates are cheapest at this time, too, and many hotels offer attractive packages.


If you're thinking of visiting in August, be forewarned: The weather is very hot and humid. Summer is also the season for outdoor concerts, festivals, parades, and other events.

This summer may be different! On August 28th, 2011 more than 250,000 visitors will be in Washington, DC to celebrate the dedication of the Martin Luther King, Jr Memorial on the 48th anniversary of King's "I Have A Dream" speech.
