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.
Explore hidden gems such as The Adventure Park at Sandy Spring and Old Rag Mountain Hike. Bring the kids along to National Air and Space Museum and National Zoological Park. Get out of town with these interesting Washington DC side-trips: Great Falls Park (in McLean), Stony Man Mountain Overlook (in Luray) and Antietam National Battlefield (in Sharpsburg). There's much more to do: contemplate the waterfront views at Tidal Basin, take in nature's colorful creations at U.S. National Arboretum, identify plant and animal life at Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge, and make a trip to Devils Den.

For traveler tips, maps, where to stay, and more tourist information, read our Washington DC travel planner.

Expect a daytime high around 55°F in March, and nighttime lows around 37°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 22nd (Sun) so you can travel back home.
