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 hidden gems such as National Museum of African American History and Culture and U.S. National Arboretum. Venture out of the city with trips to Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine (in Baltimore), The Adventure Park at Sandy Spring (in Sandy Spring) and Gettysburg (Gettysburg National Cemetery, Victorian Photography Studio, &more). Next up on the itinerary: take in the spiritual surroundings of Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, see the interesting displays at National Postal Museum, don't miss a visit to John F. Kennedy Grave Site, and contemplate the waterfront views at Tidal Basin.

To find other places to visit, photos, traveler tips, and tourist information, refer to the Washington DC vacation planner.

Expect a daytime high around 76°F in May, and nighttime lows around 58°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
