Washington DC ©
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.
Museum-lovers will appreciate National Air and Space Museum and United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Gettysburg National Military Park and Tomb of the Unknowns. Change things up with these side-trips from Washington DC: Antietam National Battlefield (in Sharpsburg), Breezy Point Beach and Campground (in Chesapeake Beach) and Shenandoah National Park (Skyline Drive & Old Rag Mountain Hike). Pack the 3rd (Sun) with family-friendly diversions at The Adventure Park at Sandy Spring. There's still lots to do: identify plant and animal life at Adkins Arboretum, explore the world behind art at National Gallery of Art, explore the different monuments and memorials at Arlington National Cemetery, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Washington National Cathedral.

In May, daytime highs in Washington DC are 76°F, while nighttime lows are 58°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 3rd (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
