Flights to Washington

As the capital of the United States of America, Washington D.C. has a rich history. Seated between the states of Virginia and Maryland, Washington D.C. was founded in 1791 by President George Washington, who lent the city his name, as a base for his government. Since then, it has been the seat of power for all forty-three of Washington's successors and the scene of some of the most important political decisions in the world. The White House sits at the centre of Washington and has been home to every U.S. President since John Adams in 1800. This iconic building is viewable to the public and has a closely situated visitors' centre, which details the function and history of the various wings. Across from the White House is Capitol Hill, where the country's senators decide policy. This building sits at the far end of the National Mall, with its mile long reflecting pool and the Washington Monument, the famous needle that stretches over five hundred feet into the sky. This is just one of many monuments around the city, with elaborate constructions having been made in honour of many Presidents like Lincoln and Roosevelt, to memorials to the soldiers who fought in wars such as Korea and Vietnam. The most recent memorial is to Martin Luther King and opened in 2011. For tourists who want to come close to history, Fords Theater, situated in the busy metropolitan district, allows the visitor to see the site of Lincoln's assassination, preserved exactly as it was in 1865.
