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.
For shopping fun, head to National Gallery of Art - Sculpture Garden or Fell's Point. Get outdoors at Fort McHenry National Monument and Harpers Ferry National Historical Park. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Washington DC: Catoctin Creek Distillery (in Purcellville) and Antietam National Battlefield (in Sharpsburg). There's much more to do: see the interesting displays at National Air and Space Museum, take an in-depth tour of National Museum of African American History and Culture, pause for some photo ops at Vietnam Veterans Memorial, and get to know the fascinating history of Capitol Hill.

Expect a daytime high around 51°F in December, and nighttime lows around 37°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 31st (Tue) so you can travel back home.
