Lindsay Lohan -- Next Stop ... WASHINGTON, D.C.

Exclusive Details

Lindsay Lohan finally made her flight to the nation's capital last night ... catching a late flight to D.C. amid a paparazzi swoon at LAX. 

As TMZ first reported, Lindsay was supposed to fly out earlier in the day ... but just couldn't get it together. We're told Lindsay actually flew private last night on a jet owned by a friend of hers in an attempt to avoid the paps. As you can see in the video ... it didn't work. 

According to our sources, Lindsay will attend Tammy Haddad's brunch today with her lawyer, Shawn Holley.

Lindsay will be a guest tonight at the White House Correspondents' Dinner and she will be sitting at the same table as Kim Kardashian. Both lovely ladies were invited by the fine people at the Fox News Channel.
