Half the fun of traveling is the goodies you bring back. As in all cosmopolitan cities, Washington is a Mecca for shopping. This is because it combines the sophisticated shops and boutiques of Washington (Princess Diana bought blue jeans and other casual wear on Upper Wisconsin Avenue on her last visit here) along with the regional goods from both Virginia and Maryland plus the largest outlet shopping mall on the Eastern seaboard.

For the dedicated shopper we provide transportation and itinerary stops custom-designed for your tour that allow you to experience a variety of shopping experiences in such locales as:  

  • GEORGETOWN:

  • Crammed with elegant boutiques and shops, Georgetown is perfect for the shopper who loves to stroll and shop. Georgetown Park, an upscale shopping mall located on M Street, is where the President and First Family hold their shopping forays before Christmas. Shopping here makes you feel as if you are almost in Europe.

  • UPPER WISCONSIN:

  • Diplomatís wives and the politically correct love to shop the upper reaches of this avenue where pricey stores abound. Stop in at Neiman-Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue and the Mazza Galleria.
     
     
     

  • OLD TOWN ALEXANDRIA:

  • This former Colonial Seaport is Virginia counterpart to Georgetown and retains the atmosphere of the days when 18th century merchants wheeled and dealed. Ye olde shoppes are filled with not only reminders of our colonial heritage, but also with the very latest in fashions and merchandise.
