Fall Timeshare Travel to Washington D.C.

Now that the heat of the summer is lessened and the massive crowds are gone, autumn is a fine time to visit our nation's capital. A timeshare rental in the Washington, D.C., area will give you plenty of time to get away from the usual museums and monuments, and discover some of Washington's unique neighborhoods

Dupont Circle is a traffic circle, a park, a neighborhood, and an historic district. A cosmopolitan neighborhood, it's home to some of Washington, D.C.,'s finest museums, historic homes, art galleries, and numerous foreign embassies. You'll find it fun to try some of the ethnic restaurants for which Dupont Circle is famous, including Thai, Middle Eastern, Greek and Ethiopian.

Dupont Circle is located in the "Old City" of Washington, D.C. - the area planned by the city's original architect Pierre Charles L'Enfant. The park located within the circle is maintained by the National Park Service. The central fountain provides seating, and if you're a chess buff you might be able to pick up a game at one of the permanent stone chessboards.

Penn Quarter (see photo) is a revitalized historic neighborhood in the east end of downtown Washington, DC., north of Pennsylvania Avenue. Penn Quarter has become an arts and entertainment district with new restaurants, hotels, nightclubs, art galleries, theaters and trendy stores. In 1997 revitalization began with a number of developments west of the FBI Building, most significantly the creation of new parks and plazas, including Pershing Park, Freedom Plaza, and the Navy Memorial.

On Thursday afternoons in spring, summer, and fall, the FRESHFARM Penn Quarter farmers market is open, and is a great place for you to pick up delicious fresh fruits and vegetables for your timeshare kitchen meals.

Georgetown is a neighborhood located in the northwest quadrant of Washington, D.C., along the Potomac River waterfront. Interestingly it predates the capital city, having been founded in 1751. It was assimilated into Washington, D.C, in 1871.

Georgetown is home to the main campus of Georgetown University, and numerous historic landmarks including Old Stone House, the oldest standing building in Washington. When you stroll through this neighborhood you'll encounter several foreign embassies including those of France, Sweden Thailand, and the Ukraine.

In the heart of the Capitol Hill neighborhood you'll find the Eastern Market. Begun in 1873, this is Washington DC’s oldest continually operated fresh food public market. Try the Market Lunch, known for its crab cakes and blueberry pancakes. The Market is also a destination for homemade arts and crafts, and community events including concerts, sing-alongs, and dance.

A timeshare rental vacation in Washington, D.C., is the perfect way to truly enjoy all of this fascinating city, and autumn is the perfect time for it.
