Everyone has an image of Washington DC. Whether it’s borrowed from the big screen, personal experience or from the news, at some point, the capital of the free world has permeated into everyone’s life. Now, in 2011, there is no better time to visit the Capital Region. Formed of Maryland, Virginia and DC, the Capital Region boasts an impressive amount of cultural heritage sights and sounds. DialAFlight, who offer fantastic deals on all flights to Washington, are the only way to travel to the capital. In an interview with Peter Stephens, MD of DialAFlight, on DialAFlight’s TV Channel Lisa Cooper, marketer of Capital Region USA for the UK market, champions the Capital Region. Prosperous and hugely historic, the great state triumvirate plays host to monumental buildings, hidden gems and glorious scenery. Flights to Washington, which take a mere eight hours, are the beginning of an enriching journey. Visit Virginia (just across the border) to experience 18th century Williamsburg, the Blue Ridge Mountains and exquisite wineries. Enjoy the natural wonders in Maryland, such as the glorious mountain peaks, enchanting waterways and tasty Maryland crab. Washington DC offers its own assemblage of international monuments. 2011 is particularly great for the capital, with the unveiling of the Martin Luther King memorial (August), the newly opened Spy Museum and a commemorative event for the 150th anniversary of the American Civil War. Lisa Cooper comments: "Washington DC is the perfect city break destination; it’s got great shopping, really good night life and high quality hotels." The best way to experience the Capital Region is to take DialAFlight’s popular Path of the Presidents tour, where customers can travel around the three states experiencing historic sites and towns such as Charlottesville, Virginia Beach and Baltimore which are rich in culture, diversity and quintessential US customs. The best time to visit the Capital Region, concludes Lisa Cooper, is Spring/Autumn. Visit the DialAFlight website to book your flight to Washington DC today.
