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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Horseshoe Casino (in Baltimore) and Gettysburg (Victorian Photography Studio & Gettysburg National Military Park). The adventure continues: examine the collection at National Air and Space Museum, get to know the resident critters at National Zoological Park, appreciate the history behind Washington Monument, and get a sense of history and politics at United States Capitol.

For ratings, maps, where to stay, and other tourist information, go to the Washington DC road trip planner.

In April, daily temperatures in Washington DC can reach 68°F, while at night they dip to 49°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 10th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
