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.
Get out of town with these interesting Washington DC side-trips: Gettysburg National Military Park (in Gettysburg) and Horseshoe Casino (in Baltimore). There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at National Air and Space Museum, learn more about the world around you at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, ponder the world of politics at United States Capitol, and browse the collection at Library of Congress.

For photos, other places to visit, reviews, and tourist information, you can read our Washington DC trip planner.

In August in Washington DC, expect temperatures between 87°F during the day and 71°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 18th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
