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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Washington DC: Baltimore (The Walters Art Museum, Horseshoe Casino, & more). The adventure continues: examine the collection at National Air and Space Museum, take an in-depth tour of United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, contemplate the waterfront views at Tidal Basin, and get a sense of history and politics at United States Capitol.

For photos, ratings, maps, and other tourist information, you can read our Washington DC holiday planner.

In May, plan for daily highs up to 28°C, and evening lows to 17°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 17th (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
