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.
Popular historic sites such as Antietam National Battlefield and Harpers Ferry National Historical Park are in your itinerary. For shopping fun, head to Fell's Point or The Preppy Redneck. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Washington DC: Fort McHenry National Monument (in Baltimore), St. Michaels (Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum & 1879 Hooper Strait Lighthouse) and Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge (in Cambridge). There's much more to do: see the interesting displays at National Air and Space Museum, identify plant and animal life at Adkins Arboretum, take in the history at Gettysburg National Military Park, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Tomb of the Unknowns.

To see other places to visit, traveler tips, ratings, and other tourist information, go to the Washington DC road trip planning site .

If you are flying in from Malta, the closest major airports are Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, Washington Dulles International Airport, Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport and Andrews Air Force Base. Expect a daytime high around 35°C in June, and nighttime lows around 24°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 14th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
