The capital of the United States, the District of Columbia contains the lion's share of the country's most treasured monuments, memorials, and public museums.
Escape the urban bustle at Antietam National Battlefield and Audubon Naturalist Society Woodend Sanctuary. You'll explore and learn at National Air and Space Museum and National Gallery of Art. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Washington DC: The Point (in Harpers Ferry), Baltimore (Horseshoe Casino, Sagamore Spirit Distillery, &more) and Gettysburg National Military Park (in Gettysburg). There's still lots to do: get engrossed in the history at United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, get a new perspective on nature at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, explore the different monuments and memorials at Arlington National Cemetery, and explore the galleries of Gari Melchers Home and Studio at Belmont.

For other places to visit, photos, maps, and tourist information, use the Washington DC road trip planner.

In December in Washington DC, expect temperatures between 51°F during the day and 37°F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 10th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
