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.
Get outdoors at Skyline Drive and Harpers Ferry National Historical Park. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Old Town and Fell's Point. Get out of town with these interesting Washington DC side-trips: Annapolis Historic District (in Annapolis), Antietam National Battlefield (in Sharpsburg) and Hague (General's Ridge Vineyard and Winery & The Hague Winery). There's lots more to do: see the interesting displays at National Air and Space Museum, pause for some photo ops at Lincoln Memorial, try to win big at Horseshoe Casino, and wander the streets of Georgetown.

To find more things to do, photos, and more tourist information, refer to the Washington DC trip planner .

In August, plan for daily highs up to 87°F, and evening lows to 71°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 25th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
