Dear Journalists,


Think Washington, DC for travel stories this summer and beyond. Here’s why:

• The Folger Shakespeare Library, featuring the world's largest Shakespeare collection, has completed a major four-year renovation, transforming the Capitol Hill landmark into a welcoming, accessible and reimagined 21st century space for visitors of all ages.

• Distinguished hotels including the St. Regis, Four Seasons and Capital Hilton have undergone renovations. The highly anticipated Salamander is expected to conclude a portion of its phased enhancements later this summer. Rebrands include the Hotel Nell - Union Market and the Hotel AKA Washington Circle.

• The summer months are full of can't-miss festivals and events, including the spectacular July 4th fireworks on the National Mall. The annual Smithsonian Folklife Festival (June 26-July 1) coincides with the National Museum of the American Indian's 20th anniversary. Celebrate DC's LGBTQ+ community during Capital Pride (May 31 - June 9), a prelude to WorldPride in the nation's capital next summer.
