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.
Attractions like National Air and Space Museum and Rock Creek Park make great kid-friendly stops. There's still lots to do: learn more about the world around you at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, meet the residents at National Zoological Park, get a sense of history and politics at White House, and contemplate the waterfront views at Tidal Basin.

To find where to stay, photos, traveler tips, and other tourist information, use the Washington DC tour itinerary maker site .

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major airports are Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, Washington Dulles International Airport and Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport. In December in Washington DC, expect temperatures between 12°C during the day and 3°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 19th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
