Well, if it’s early April you might get lucky enough to hit peak Cherry Blossom.

If you are flying from RSW, you’ll probably fly into DCA, loads of hotels nearby in Crystal City that are within walking distance of all the sights or a quick journey by metro if you prefer.

No shortage of restaurants, sports events or theatre/music options if that’s your thing in the evening. No idea about nightclubs though.

But a lot of what DC has to offer is a bit like London – it all revolves around history. If you discount all the (mostly free to enter) museums, art galleries, memorials, National Cemetery, Capitol building, Mt Vernon($) and so forth you would probably quickly run out of things to do. Plenty of trails to walk though.
