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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Jug Bay Wetlands Sanctuary and Olivins. Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum and U.S. Naval Academy are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Step out of Washington DC with an excursion to Antietam National Battlefield in Sharpsburg--about 1h 30 min away. There's more to do: contemplate the long history of Old Town and explore the world behind art at National Portrait Gallery.

To see where to stay, traveler tips, photos, and more tourist information, go to the Washington DC journey planner.

In March, plan for daily highs up to 55°F, and evening lows to 37°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 25th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
