Washington DC ©
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'll discover tucked-away gems like Shriver House Museum and Hillwood Estate, Museum & Gardens. Let the collections at Jennie Wade House and National Museum of the Marine Corps capture your imagination. Change things up with these side-trips from Washington DC: Fredericksburg (Hugh Mercer Apothecary Shop & Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania National Military Park) and Gettysburg (Gettysburg National Cemetery & Dobbin House Tavern). Spend the 2nd (Tue) exploring nature at Mary McLeod Bethune Council House. There's much more to do: explore the world behind art at Smithsonian American Art Museum, take an in-depth tour of National Portrait Gallery, ponder the world of politics at Smithsonian Institution Building, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception.

To see maps, reviews, other places to visit, and other tourist information, refer to the Washington DC online trip itinerary maker .

In June, daily temperatures in Washington DC can reach 86°F, while at night they dip to 69°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 4th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
