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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Washington DC: Gettysburg (Gettysburg National Cemetery & Gettysburg National Military Park), Horseshoe Casino (in Baltimore) and Mount Vernon Trail (in Arlington). There's still lots to do: examine the collection at National Air and Space Museum, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at National Zoological Park, pause for some photo ops at Washington Monument, and explore the world behind art at National Gallery of Art.

To find ratings, maps, photos, and tourist information, you can read our Washington DC trip planner.

In April, plan for daily highs up to 68°F, and evening lows to 49°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 10th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
