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.
Kick off your visit on the 15th (Sat): steep yourself in history at Arlington National Cemetery, contemplate the waterfront views at Tidal Basin, and then examine the collection at National Air and Space Museum. Here are some ideas for day two: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Washington National Cathedral, then try your luck at Horseshoe Casino, and then sample the fine beverages at Sagamore Spirit Distillery.

Expect a daytime high around 86°F in June, and nighttime lows around 69°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 16th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
