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.
Appreciate the collections at National Air and Space Museum and National Gallery of Art. Fell's Point and Arlington National Cemetery are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Get out of town with these interesting Washington DC side-trips: Big Cork Vineyards (in Rohrersville), Baltimore (Power Plant, Horseshoe Casino, & more) and Gettysburg (Eisenhower National Historic Site, Knob Hall Winery, & more). There's still lots to do: contemplate the long history of Old Town, appreciate the extensive heritage of National Mall, get engrossed in the history at United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, and get a new perspective on nature at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History.

For other places to visit, photos, reviews, and other tourist information, refer to the Washington DC online itinerary builder .

In December, daytime highs in Washington DC are 51°F, while nighttime lows are 37°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 4th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
