On July 4th, we officially celebrate the birth of our nation (United States of America) and what better way to celebrate than heading over to our nation's capitol and experiencing it for yourself. Take in the museums, monuments, and explore our diverse and rich culture. Lounge on the national mall and see the fireworks display over the city. Its a great experience. I have been fortunate enough to do this several times.
Its a real shame that for some unknown reason the latest issue of Marriott Bonvoy Traveler: https://traveler.marriott.com/tips-and-trends/where-to-celebrate-fourth-of-july-weekend-getaway/ titled "Where to Celebrate the Red, White and Blue on a July 4th Weekend Getaway" did not even mention our nation's capitol? That was very disappointing.
There are plenty of great Marriott Hotels to stay in Washington D.C. I have much enjoyed staying here:
- The JW Marriott Washington Hotel Near White House - National Mall | JW Marriott Washington, DC
- The historic Mayflower Boutique Hotel Washington, D.C. | The Mayflower Hotel, Autograph Collection
- The downtown Weston Downtown Washington, D.C. Hotels | The Westin Washington, D.C. City Center
If you cant make it for the July 4th celebration, Washington D.C. is still a great place to visit anytime to learn about our nation and how it works today.
