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.
Kick off your visit on the 27th (Sat): admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Art, then see the interesting displays at National Air and Space Museum, and then contemplate the waterfront views at Tidal Basin. Here are some ideas for day two: get engrossed in the history at United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, pause for some photo ops at Lincoln Memorial, appreciate the history behind Vietnam Veterans Memorial, then learn more about the world around you at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, and finally get a sense of history and politics at White House.

Make your Washington DC itinerary with Inspirock to find out what to see and where to go.

In April, daytime highs in Washington DC are 68°F, while nighttime lows are 49°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 28th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
