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 get to explore National Air and Space Museum and Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Gettysburg National Military Park and Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. Step out of Washington DC to go to Ridgely and see Adkins Arboretum, which is approximately 1h 40 min away. There's much more to do: admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Art, steep yourself in history at Georgetown University, appreciate the history behind Vietnam Veterans Memorial, and take an in-depth tour of United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airports are Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, Washington Dulles International Airport and Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport. In June, plan for daily highs up to 34°C, and evening lows to 23°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 6th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
