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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Gettysburg National Military Park and Washington National Cathedral. United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and National Gallery of Art are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Change things up with these side-trips from Washington DC: George Washington's Mount Vernon (in Mount Vernon) and Association of Licensed Battlefield Guides (in Gettysburg). There's lots more to do: get a new perspective on nature at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, get to know the fascinating history of The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, get engrossed in the history at Newseum, and admire the masterpieces at National Portrait Gallery.

To see more things to do, ratings, maps, and other tourist information, use the Washington DC travel route planner.

Expect a daytime high around 55°F in March, and nighttime lows around 37°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 3rd (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
