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 explore the less-touristy side of things at Skyline Drive and Harpers Ferry National Historical Park. Explore Washington DC's surroundings by going to U.S. Naval Academy (in Annapolis), Baltimore (Fort McHenry National Monument & Horseshoe Casino) and Antietam National Battlefield (in Sharpsburg). There's much more to do: examine the collection at National Air and Space Museum, pause for some photo ops at Vietnam Veterans Memorial, ponder the world of politics at Library of Congress, and admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Art.

To find ratings, other places to visit, photos, and tourist information, go to the Washington DC online route maker .

If you are flying in from Indonesia, the closest major airports are Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, Washington Dulles International Airport and Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport. In December, daytime highs in Washington DC are 12°C, while nighttime lows are 3°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 2nd (Wed) to allow time to travel back home.
