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've added Ford's Theatre, National Mall, National Zoological Park, and other attractions to your itinerary. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Old Town and Tomb of the Unknowns. You'll explore and learn at National Air and Space Museum and Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History. And it doesn't end there: appreciate the extensive heritage of Capitol Hill, contemplate the long history of Arlington National Cemetery, get engrossed in the history at National Museum of American History, and pause for some photo ops at Vietnam Veterans Memorial.

For ratings, where to stay, other places to visit, and more tourist information, you can read our Washington DC holiday planner .

In December, plan for daily highs up to 51°F, and evening lows to 37°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 6th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
