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.
Visiting Antietam National Battlefield and Tidal Basin will get you outdoors. Museum-lovers will appreciate National Air and Space Museum and United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. Get out of town with these interesting Washington DC side-trips: Horseshoe Casino (in Baltimore), Hidden Oaks Nature Center (in Annandale) and Loch Raven Reservoir (in Phoenix). And it doesn't end there: take in the spiritual surroundings of Washington National Cathedral, identify plant and animal life at Jug Bay Wetlands Sanctuary, appreciate the extensive heritage of Tomb of the Unknowns, and stroll the grounds of Arlington National Cemetery.

To see other places to visit, ratings, where to stay, and other tourist information, go to the Washington DC trip website .

If you are flying in from Norway, the closest major airports are Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, Washington Dulles International Airport and Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport. In April, daily temperatures in Washington DC can reach 23°C, while at night they dip to 11°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 20th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
