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: Robinson Nature Center (in Columbia), Horseshoe Casino (in Baltimore) and Breezy Point Beach and Campground (in Chesapeake Beach). There's still lots to do: examine the collection at National Air and Space Museum, pause for some photo ops at Lincoln Memorial, admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Art, and look for all kinds of wild species at Scott's Run Nature Preserve.

To see photos, traveler tips, reviews, and more tourist information, you can read our Washington DC sightseeing planning app .

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. Expect a daytime high around 35°C in June, and nighttime lows around 24°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 1st (Sun) to allow time to travel back home.
