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 The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Washington DC: Antietam National Battlefield (in Sharpsburg), Gettysburg (Shriver House Museum & Little Round Top) and James Madison's Montpelier (in Montpelier Station). There's much more to do: pause for some photo ops at Vietnam Veterans Memorial, wander the streets of Capitol Hill, explore the historical opulence of Smithsonian Institution Building, and contemplate the long history of Old Town.

To find traveler tips, reviews, photos, and other tourist information, you can read our Washington DC tour itinerary builder site .

In December, daytime highs in Washington DC are 51°F, while nighttime lows are 37°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 23rd (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
