Packing for Washington
Summers in Washington are hot and humid with frequent thunderstorms. Temperatures in July and August can reach into the low 30°C. Suncream, sunglasses and a hat are musts and it’s also wise to pack some long-sleeved shirts to keep those arms under wraps and away from the sunshine. Winters are mild but do expect regular rain. It’s worth packing some waterproofs. Let Luggage Mule ship your luggage direct to your city hotel and enjoy your holiday carefree.
