If your trip to Washington is all organized but your travel itinerary is a little on the empty side, we can give you a few hints and tips.
Make the short journey out of the heart of the neighborhood and spend a couple of hours discovering AMF Bowling Washington and WWT Washington Wetland Centre. After you've crossed them off your to-do list, travel in the direction of George Washington Golf Club.
If you're after some fascinating places nearby, head 2 miles from Washington to Birtley. Whether you visit for a day or just a couple of hours, there's lots to keep you occupied.
Fling a bucket in the trunk and go for an outing to one of the area's glorious coastal stretches for some beachcombing fun in the sun. See how many interesting treasures you can find strewn along the water's edge before you hit the road back to Washington. Some of the top beaches to consider are:
The open road is calling your name, and Washington is a wonderful base for your Chester-le-Street adventure. Situated 4 miles from the city center, the first thing you'll need to pick up is the key to one of our superb rental cars. A full-size SUV will get you in and around Chester-le-Street in total comfort — or you might want to head off the beaten track and discover hidden spots with a rugged four-wheel drive. For city commuting, we'd suggest renting a compact or economy car. They might not be as spacious, but they'll be great at squeezing into those tiny parking lots.
There's more than enough choice when it comes to rental cars in Washington. From sporty models with all the mod cons to easy-to-park compacts, you'll find it all here. Choosing your perfect match of course depends on your budget and what activities you've got planned. There are some road trips that are just begging you to splurge on your dream ride, whereas others require no more than an engine and four wheels. Which car will you be sliding behind the wheel of this trip?
