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 discover tucked-away gems like Skyline Drive and Harpers Ferry National Historical Park. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Washington DC: Antietam National Battlefield (in Sharpsburg) and Horseshoe Casino (in Baltimore). There's lots more to do: examine the collection at National Air and Space Museum, get engrossed in the history at United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, pause for some photo ops at Lincoln Memorial, and get a new perspective on nature at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History.

To see photos, more things to do, ratings, and other tourist information, go to the Washington DC online day trip planner .

Expect a daytime high around 68°F in April, and nighttime lows around 49°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 20th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
