days
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.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Antietam National Battlefield and Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge. Change things up with these side-trips from Washington DC: Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum (in St. Michaels), Historic Annapolis (in Annapolis) and National Museum of the Marine Corps (in Triangle). There's still lots to do: contemplate the waterfront views at Tidal Basin, pause for some serene contemplation at Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, explore and take pictures at Verizon Center, and explore the world behind art at The Phillips Collection.

In March, daytime highs in Washington DC are 57°F, while nighttime lows are 39°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 16th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
