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.
Kids will enjoy National Air and Space Museum and International Spy Museum. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Washington DC: Horseshoe Casino (in Baltimore), Clue IQ: An Escape Room Experience (in Frederick) and Gettysburg National Military Park (in Gettysburg). There's still lots to do: learn more about the world around you at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, get advice or help at Library of Congress, admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Art, and get a sense of history and politics at White House.

To see other places to visit, maps, more things to do, and tourist information, go to the Washington DC trip maker app .

Expect a daytime high around 51°F in December, and nighttime lows around 37°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 28th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
