 Explore Our Nation's Capital - Area Information

We would like to welcome you to our nation's capital!  We encourage you to take some time prior to the conference or after the conference to explore one of the most historic and eclectic cities in America.  For those that are interested in touring D.C., our room block begins on Saturday, July 11th and our group rate will be honored for three days after the conference (based on room and rate availability) so bring the family and enjoy this beautiful and historic city and all it has to offer.

Whether you are interested in politics, the arts, shopping, sports or soaking in American history, D.C. has something for everyone.  You will enjoy exploring the many monuments, museums (many of them free), unique neighborhoods, music, international foods, the National Zoo (free admission), the White House, Capitol building, Library of Congress, Supreme Court, foreign embassies and much more. 

The Omni Shoreham is located just half a block from the Woodley Park/National Zoo Metro station so getting around is easy. For more information about the Omni's location compared to area attractions, click here.
