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 National Museum of African American History and Culture and Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. Museum-lovers will get to explore National Air and Space Museum and National Portrait Gallery. Venture out of the city with trips to U.S. Naval Academy (in Annapolis), Antietam National Battlefield (in Sharpsburg) and National Museum of the Marine Corps (in Triangle). And it doesn't end there: explore the world behind art at Hillwood Estate, Museum & Gardens, appreciate the history behind Lincoln Memorial, appreciate the extensive heritage of The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, and identify plant and animal life at Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge.

To see other places to visit, ratings, traveler tips, and tourist information, refer to the Washington DC journey planning tool.

In March, plan for daily highs up to 55°F, and evening lows to 37°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 3rd (Fri) so you can travel back home.
