But with bright lights and decorations making the city festive, it’s actually so cheerful and fun. Plus, if you’ve ever visited in the summer, you know how hot and humid it can get. As long as you’re well-prepared, winter is the best time of year to visit DC.

Numerous Tourists Visit Washington DC’s National Mall Each Year

Why Washington DC Is So Popular With Tourists

For nine straight years, the capital city has welcomed more visitors touring Washington, DC than the year before. This year-over-year growth may be partly due to the ‘Discover the Real DC campaign’ that recently began, but it also comes from people wanting to see the sites that play a big role in the history behind the  capital of the United States, such as:

  • The White House
  • The Washington Monument
  • The Lincoln Memorial
  • The Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial
  • Vietnam Veterans Memorial
