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 Tomb of the Unknowns and Gettysburg National Cemetery. Antietam National Battlefield and Jennie Wade House will appeal to history buffs. Get out of town with these interesting Washington DC side-trips: Sotterley Historic Plantation (in Hollywood), Harpers Ferry National Historical Park (in Harpers Ferry) and Gettysburg National Military Park (in Gettysburg). There's much more to do: see the interesting displays at National Air and Space Museum, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St George's Episcopal Church, admire the striking features of George Washington's Mount Vernon, and explore the world behind art at National Gallery of Art.

To find traveler tips, other places to visit, ratings, and tourist information, refer to the Washington DC travel itinerary planner.

In December in Washington DC, expect temperatures between 51°F during the day and 37°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 9th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
