Washington DC

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.
Head to R.H. Ballard Shop & Gallery and Fell's Pointfor some retail therapy. Popular historic sites such as Antietam National Battlefield and Tomb of the Unknowns are in your itinerary. Explore Washington DC's surroundings by going to Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge (in Cambridge), Gari Melchers Home and Studio at Belmont (in Falmouth) and Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum (in St. Michaels). There's much more to do: see the interesting displays at National Air and Space Museum, take in the exciting artwork at Torpedo Factory Art Center, pause for some photo ops at Vietnam Veterans Memorial, and take a stroll through Old Town.

Plan my trip to Washington DC with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Expect a daytime high around 68°F in April, and nighttime lows around 49°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 26th (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
