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 out of town with these interesting Washington DC side-trips: Mount Vernon Trail (in Arlington), Horseshoe Casino (in Baltimore) and Gettysburg (Gettysburg Battlefield Books & Collectibles & Gettysburg National Military Park). And it doesn't end there: examine the collection at National Air and Space Museum, pause for some photo ops at Vietnam Veterans Memorial, get to know the resident critters at National Zoological Park, and get a new perspective on nature at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History.

To see maps, other places to visit, and tourist information, go to the Washington DC trip planner.

Expect a daytime high around 68°F in April, and nighttime lows around 49°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 11th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
