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.
Take a break from the city and head to Breezy Point Beach and Campground and Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts. You'll explore and learn at Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum and United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. Get out of town with these interesting Washington DC side-trips: Cobbler Mountain Cellars (in Delaplane), Gray Ghost Vineyards (in Amissville), Horseshoe Casino Baltimore (in Baltimore) and Gettysburg National Military Park (in Gettysburg). There's lots more to do: browse the eclectic array of goods at Takoma Park Farmers Market, explore the striking landscape of National Mall, take a stroll through Old Town, and explore the world behind art at National Gallery of Art.

To find traveler tips, photos, ratings, and tourist information, go to the Washington DC online itinerary creator.

If you are flying in from Qatar, the closest major airports are Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, Washington Dulles International Airport and Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport. In January, plan for daily highs up to 7°C, and evening lows to -1°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 13th (Fri) early enough to go by car back home.
