Washington DC

Washington DC ©
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.
Visit Hugh Mercer Apothecary Shop and Capitol Hill for their historical value. Escape the urban bustle at Shenandoah Valley Golf Club and Harpers Ferry National Historical Park. Venture out of the city with trips to Antietam National Battlefield (in Sharpsburg), Skyline Drive (in Shenandoah National Park) and U.S. Naval Academy (in Annapolis). There's much more to do: tee off at Mattaponi Springs Golf Club, appreciate the extensive heritage of Tomb of the Unknowns, get a taste of the local shopping with Fell's Point, and contemplate the long history of Old Town.

For reviews, other places to visit, photos, and tourist information, read our Washington DC sightseeing planner.

In April in Washington DC, expect temperatures between 68°F during the day and 49°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 10th (Wed) to allow time to travel back home.
