If you're an American, it's the trip you have to make at least once in your lifetime—Washington, DC. Stand on the hallowed ground at the Washington Monument or the Lincoln Memorial. Pay your respects to the fallen at the different war memorials. Visit the Smithsonian or take a walk along the National Mall. Tour the White House or visit the Capitol Building to see our government at work.
The nation's capital is the home of our federal government and a repository of many of the country's most-treasured landmarks. But it's also a vibrant and exciting city, with world class cultural offerings, championship sports franchises, five star restaurants, great golf courses and unique shopping opportunities—a great place to take a group of people.
But the Washington, DC area is sprawling, with ribbons of highways creating a veritable labyrinth around the city. You don't want to get caught up in capital traffic and you certainly don't want to spend most of your trip buried in a map or checking your watch. There's a better way to see DC—in the comfort and luxury of a charter bus rental from US Coachways. Relax with friends and family while we handle the details.

In 1789, just a year after being elected the first president of the United States (and the only one ever unanimously elected by the Electoral College), George Washington commissioned an engineer to create a design for the nation's capital, established in the District of Columbia by Congress that same year. It now houses many of the most revered structures and monuments from American history. Take a tour of the White House or visit the Halls of Congress. Stop by the U.S. Supreme Court Building, where pivotal legal decisions have been handed down for more than two centuries. Visit the Washington Monument or the Lincoln Memorial, both a part of the National Mall. Honor America's fighting men and women at Arlington National Cemetery, or at any of the war memorials.
The nation's capital offers the best of the best to patrons of the performing and visual arts. Visit the Kennedy Center to hear the National Symphony Orchestra, watch the Washington Ballet or to enjoy the Washington National Opera. If your tastes include jazz, rock, folk, blues or other popular music genres, there are many clubs and small venues where you can catch a show. The city also has dozens of places to take in live theatrical productions.
Of course, you really shouldn't visit the nation's capital without stopping in at one of the tremendous museums. You could probably spend a week at the Smithsonian and not see everything. There's also the United State Holocaust Memorial Museum, the National Gallery of Art, the National Museum of the Marine Corps, and the National Museum of Natural History,among many others.
The nation's capital is one of a handful of American cities to field a team in the four most popular professional sports. The NHL's Washington Capitals are recent Stanley Cup Champions (2018) and the Redskins have won three Super Bowls. Stop by Nationals Park to catch major league baseball or catch a Wizards' basketball game at the Capital One Arena. DC is also home to the Citi Open, one of the premier professional tennis tournaments.
Washington, DC has long been a destination for golfers, both amateur and professional. The city has hosted three U.S. Opens and a PGA Championship. The city offers more than a dozen courses in the immediate DC area.
The dining options in DC reflect the diversity of our nation, with the District of Columbia a testament to our status as a melting pot. You'll find almost any type of cuisine here, including some of the classic American fare—barbeque, burgers, steaks and seafood. You can also savor foods from around the world—Burmese, Arabic, Shanghai, Peruvian, Polynesian and Salvadoran cuisines are just a few of the ethnic offerings.
If shopping is your priority, head over to Georgetown, where you'll find antique stores, collectible galleries and one-of-a-kind boutiques. For world-famous retailers, check out CityCenterDC. To patronize local artists and designers, visit Union Market or Eastern Market.
A charter bus is a great way to experience the District of Columbia, but it's important to have the right-sized coach for your group, with the specific amenities you need. You want plenty of room for everyone to move about comfortably, but you don't want a lot of empty seats, either.
At US Coachways, we've built a vast network of charter bus service providers over the last three decades, offering us access to a huge fleet of vehicles. We'll help you find the coach that suits your needs.
Most of the charter buses come with standard conveniences, such as Wifi, charging ports for most devices, DVD players and PA systems.
