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.
Visit Gettysburg National Military Park and Washington National Cathedral for their historical value. Let the collections at National Air and Space Museum and National Gallery of Art capture your imagination. When in Washington DC, make a side trip to see Great Falls Park in McLean, approximately 36 minutes away. There's still lots to do: contemplate the waterfront views at Tidal Basin, appreciate the history behind Vietnam Veterans Memorial, gain insight at Georgetown University, and tour the pleasant surroundings at National Zoological Park.

To find other places to visit, reviews, photos, and other tourist information, read Washington DC holiday planner.

In March in Washington DC, expect temperatures between 55°F during the day and 37°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
