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 Old Rag Mountain Hike and Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine. Venture out of the city with trips to Mount Vernon Trail (in Arlington), Gettysburg (Devils Den & The Eternal Light Peace Memorial) and Baltimore (Little Italy, Horseshoe Casino, & more). There's lots more to do: examine the collection at National Air and Space Museum, tour the pleasant surroundings at Stony Man Mountain Overlook, get a new perspective on nature at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, and explore the wealth of natural beauty at Harpers Ferry National Historical Park.

To find where to stay, photos, more things to do, and more tourist information, refer to the Washington DC trip maker website .

In December, daily temperatures in Washington DC can reach 51°F, while at night they dip to 37°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 13th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
