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.
Do your shopping at Fell's Point and R.H. Ballard Shop & Gallery. Bring the kids along to National Air and Space Museum and Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History. Venture out of the city with trips to Horseshoe Casino (in Baltimore), Desert Rose Ranch & Winery (in Hume) and Trinity Episcopal Church (in Upperville). There's lots more to do: take a stroll through Old Town, see the interesting displays at United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, appreciate the extensive heritage of Tomb of the Unknowns, and explore the world behind art at National Gallery of Art.

If you are flying in from Panama, the closest major airports are Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, Washington Dulles International Airport and Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport. In April, daytime highs in Washington DC are 23°C, while nighttime lows are 11°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 21st (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
