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.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Arlington National Cemetery and Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History. Bring the kids along to National Air and Space Museum and National Zoological Park. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Washington DC: Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center (in Chantilly) and George Washington's Mount Vernon (in Mount Vernon). There's still lots to do: admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Art, appreciate the extensive heritage of Tomb of the Unknowns, contemplate the long history of Frederick Douglass National Historic Site, and get engrossed in the history at United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.

To see ratings, maps, more things to do, and other tourist information, refer to the Washington DC journey planning tool .

If you are flying in from Mexico, the closest major airports are Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, Washington Dulles International Airport and Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport. In July, plan for daily highs up to 37°C, and evening lows to 26°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 23rd (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
