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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Skyline Drive and Harpers Ferry National Historical Park. Explore Washington DC's surroundings by going to Copper Fox Distillery (in Sperryville), Gettysburg (Association of Licensed Battlefield Guides, Gettysburg Museum & Visitor Center, & more) and Antietam National Battlefield (in Sharpsburg). There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at National Air and Space Museum, learn about all things military at U.S. Naval Academy, get a new perspective on nature at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, and appreciate the history behind Vietnam Veterans Memorial.

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airports are Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, Washington Dulles International Airport and Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport. In July, daily temperatures in Washington DC can reach 37°C, while at night they dip to 26°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 15th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
