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.
On the 4th (Tue), get to know the fascinating history of The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, explore the world behind art at National Gallery of Art, and then see the interesting displays at National Air and Space Museum. Here are some ideas for day two: stroll the grounds of Arlington National Cemetery, then take in the spiritual surroundings of Washington National Cathedral, and then get to know the resident critters at National Zoological Park.

To find more things to do, photos, maps, and more tourist information, refer to the Washington DC day trip planning app .

In June, daytime highs in Washington DC are 86°F, while nighttime lows are 69°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 5th (Wed) to allow time to travel back home.
