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 find plenty of places to visit near Washington DC: Roddy Road Covered Bridge (in Thurmont), Gettysburg (Gettysburg National Cemetery, Devils Den, &more) and Knill's Farm Market (in Mount Airy). Next up on the itinerary: examine the collection at National Air and Space Museum, appreciate the history behind Vietnam Veterans Memorial, try to win big at Horseshoe Casino, and ponder the world of politics at White House.

To find where to stay, reviews, maps, and other tourist information, you can read our Washington DC vacation planner.

In May, plan for daily highs up to °F, and evening lows to °F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 15th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
