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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Antietam National Battlefield and Tomb of the Unknowns. Get in touch with nature at Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge and Adkins Arboretum. Venture out of the city with trips to Layton's Chance Vineyard and Winery (in Vienna), Worthington Manor Golf Club (in Urbana) and U.S. Naval Academy (in Annapolis). Next up on the itinerary: see the interesting displays at National Air and Space Museum, admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Art, take a stroll through Old Town, and pause for some photo ops at Vietnam Veterans Memorial.

For more things to do, photos, other places to visit, and more tourist information, refer to the Washington DC tour itinerary planner.

Expect a daytime high around 69°F in April, and nighttime lows around 49°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 21st (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
