When To Visit DC
2. Visit During The Right Time Of The Year
What may appear to be the wrong time of year for most…may be the best time of year to visit for you if economics are a consideration. There can be significant savings on hotels and travel during the winter and late summer. A heavy coat and heat tolerance can result in big savings in your pocketbook.

The Cherry Blossom Festival in Mid-March to Mid-April can also bring heavy tourism to the city.
