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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Antietam National Battlefield and Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History. Museum-lovers will appreciate National Air and Space Museum and United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. Venture out of the city with trips to Baltimore (Fort McHenry National Monument & Horseshoe Casino), Breezy Point Beach and Campground (in Chesapeake Beach) and Robinson Nature Center (in Columbia). There's much more to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Adkins Arboretum, tour the pleasant surroundings at Gettysburg National Military Park, admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Art, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Washington National Cathedral.

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

If you are flying in from Canada, 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. In July, plan for daily highs up to 37°C, and evening lows to 26°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 27th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
