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.
You've now added Lincoln Memorial to your itinerary. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Washington DC: Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center (in Chantilly), Frederick (Clue IQ: An Escape Room Experience & Dragon Distillery, LLC) and National Museum of the Marine Corps (in Triangle). And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at National Air and Space Museum, admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Art, get engrossed in the history at United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, and appreciate the history behind Vietnam Veterans Memorial.

To see ratings, other places to visit, traveler tips, and other tourist information, go to the Washington DC holiday planner.

In December, plan for daily highs up to 51°F, and evening lows to 37°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 3rd (Fri) so you can travel back home.
