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.
Change things up with a short trip to Horseshoe Casino in Baltimore (about 1 hour away). There's lots more to do: examine the collection at National Air and Space Museum, ponder the world of politics at United States Capitol, pause for some photo ops at Lincoln Memorial, and take an in-depth tour of United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.

To see photos, where to stay, and other tourist information, read our Washington DC day trip planner.

In December, daily temperatures in Washington DC can reach 51°F, while at night they dip to 37°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 15th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
