A Capital Summer
Once Congress begins summer recess (Aug. 6 - Sept. 7) and lobbyists leave town, Washington, D.C., has a lot of hotel rooms to fill.
This makes summer an ideal time for families to visit our nation's capital. Not only will you score the best deals of the year -- at up to 60% off -- but you'll be free to explore without feeling the need to sport a suit or necktie.
Three airports and several low-cost carriers service Washington, D.C., and a Metrorail system zips visitors around the city.
