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.
Get some cultural insight at Washington National Cathedral and Tomb of the Unknowns. Take a break from the city and head to Tidal Basin and Fort McHenry National Monument. Explore Washington DC's surroundings by going to Horseshoe Casino (in Baltimore) and Gettysburg (Gettysburg National Military Park, Gettysburg National Cemetery, & more). Spend the 4th (Thu) exploring nature at Mary McLeod Bethune Council House. There's still lots to do: examine the collection at National Air and Space Museum, get engrossed in the history at Newseum, steep yourself in history at President Lincoln's Cottage, and appreciate the extensive heritage of National Mall.

In March, daytime highs in Washington DC are 55°F, while nighttime lows are 37°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 7th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
