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've added Jefferson Memorial, National Museum of African American History and Culture, National World War II Memorial, and other attractions to your itinerary. Arlington National Cemetery and Tomb of the Unknowns will appeal to history buffs. Attractions like National Air and Space Museum and Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History make great kid-friendly stops. The adventure continues: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Washington National Cathedral, get engrossed in the history at United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, admire nature's wide array of creatures at National Zoological Park, and steep yourself in history at Audubon Naturalist Society Woodend Sanctuary.

To see more things to do, other places to visit, ratings, and tourist information, go to the Washington DC tour planning website .

In August, plan for daily highs up to 87°F, and evening lows to 71°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 27th (Tue) to allow time to travel back home.
