Washington DC needs little introduction with its array of hallowed monuments and museums. Look beyond all that history and you’ll discover a lot more with diverse communities building a future in everything from art and cuisine to sports and culture. Booking into a homely airbnb will enable you to see a different side of the US capital. Here are our favourite holiday rentals, bookable on Culture Trip.
This gorgeously renovated English basement apartment features high ceilings, updated appliances, a laundry room and access to a charming backyard. Located in Columbia Height, it is only five metro stops away from the National Mall, White House and several museums.
This airbnb, which sits on a charming, tree-filled street off Lincoln Park, is a suitable option for a single traveller or couple. It has a full kitchen and a dining and living area, complete with a smart TV that includes Netflix. Attractions within walking distance include the Eastern Market, Barracks Row, H Street and two metro lines that will take you to almost anywhere in DC. The owners are happy to share their knowledge of the city, and provide a welcome book of attractions and restaurant recommendations.
