Destination guide

Take the vacationer's oath in McLean

Do you solemnly swear that you will faithfully execute the office of vacation traveler to the best of your ability? Good, then McLean is the place to do it. This distinguished, stately place is only a half-hour drive from downtown Washington, D.C. Distinctive for its grand architecture and deliciously high standards in all things, it's where the great and the good of the capital (and the Capitol, for that matter) live their lives in the luxury to which they're accustomed. Why not join them (if only temporarily) with a McLean vacation rental?

Things to do

Don't forget your Secret Service retinue

Popular excursions include the rapids of Great Falls State Park and the tranquil surroundings of Rock Creek Park, but sooner or later your steps are going to lead you half an hour down the road into Downtown D.C. As a suburb of Washington, D.C., a McLean vacation rental gives you easy access to all the attractions of our nation's capital, including the Capitol, the White House, and a staggering array of galleries and museums covering everything from history and culture to transport and science. You could literally spend weeks getting round them all.


Be more like Theodore with a McLean vacation rental

You might not fancy a daily swim in the icy Potomac river in the macho tradition of Teddy Roosevelt, but a stroll along its banks could be just the way to start your McLean vacation rental. As befits such a dignified suburb, the area round McLean is full of parks, many incorporating hiking trails, biking routes and playgrounds. And if you're more about exerting your wallet than your leg muscles, Tysons Corner and Tysons Galleria malls are among the biggest in the state, and are there to relieve you of as much cash as you care to part with.


Chasing cheery cherry blossom in McLean

A McLean vacation rental is a treat at any time of year, but fall and spring are perhaps the best times. Fall brings all the wonderful colors you'd expect of such a leafy city, while one of the most eye-catching times to visit the Washington, D.C. area is in spring, when travelers and locals alike descend on the city for the National Cherry Blossom Festival. Summers in McLean can get quite humid, with thunderstorms a frequent occurrence. Winters, on the other hand, are cold with light snow dumps, though every few years there tends to be a notable blizzard.

Natural features

A lean, green, McLean machine

Despite being in a largely urban area, there's an awful lot of greenery round McLean. The greater D.C. area has one of the highest percentages of parkland of any major U.S. city, and the 1,700-acre Rock Creek Park is home to wildlife including owls, raccoons, and coyotes. The other dominant feature is the mighty Potomac River, and just north east of McLean is Great Falls Park, home to some of the most striking rapids and waterfalls in the area. If you're not much of a spectator then you could get out on the rapids yourself, since they're popular with rafters.
