Advert Travel Gazette

TRAVEL GAZETTE – Destination DC, the official convention and tourism bureau for the US capital, is preparing to welcome significant hospitality and cultural additions as well as significant arts anniversaries this year.

The continuing boom in neighborhood redevelopment, fueled by $9.2 billion in fiscal investment, also brings dozens of original restaurants, nightclub and retail experiences.

“We are as excited about the volume of soon-to-open hotels and cultural institutions as we are the number of arts-related anniversaries in 2016,” said Elliott Ferguson, president and CEO of Destination DC.

“This intersection of new and established inventory – plus election year buzz – makes the District of Columbia a compelling destination for leisure visitors and business travelers who add an extra day or a weekend to their itinerary,” he added.
