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.
National Museum of African American History and Culture and The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Step out of the city life by going to Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine and Great Falls Park. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Washington DC: Harpers Ferry (White Hall Tavern & Harpers Ferry National Historical Park), Manassas National Battlefield Park (in Manassas) and Antietam National Battlefield (in Sharpsburg). There's lots more to do: explore the world behind art at Hillwood Estate, Museum & Gardens, take an in-depth tour of National Portrait Gallery, take in the spiritual surroundings of Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, and contemplate the long history of James Madison's Montpelier.

Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Washington DC fast, fun, and easy.

Expect a daytime high around 48°F in February, and nighttime lows around 32°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 22nd (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
