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.
National Air and Space Museum and Antietam National Battlefield are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Old Town and Harpers Ferry National Historical Park will appeal to history buffs. Change things up with these side-trips from Washington DC: Stratford Hall (in Stratford), The Hague Winery (in Hague) and Menokin (in Warsaw). There's lots more to do: get to know the fascinating history of Tomb of the Unknowns, try your luck at Horseshoe Casino, take a stroll through Capitol Hill, and admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Art.

For more things to do, traveler tips, photos, and other tourist information, refer to the Washington DC tour planner.

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airports are Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, Washington Dulles International Airport, Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport and Andrews Air Force Base. April in Washington DC sees daily highs of 24°C and lows of 11°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 4th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
