36. Things To Do In Washington D.C.
In addition to all the regular museums and monuments, you should make time in your itinerary for festive spots like the Zoo Lights exhibition at the Smithsonian National Zoo. Other spots not to miss are the Capitol Christmas tree (talk about photo op!), the downtown holiday market, and the candlelit tour of George Washington's Mount Vernon where you can see what Christmas looked like in 1787.
