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 Ford's Theatre, Library of Congress, United States Capitol, and other attractions to your itinerary. Popular historic sites such as Arlington National Cemetery and Washington National Cathedral are in your itinerary. Let the collections at National Air and Space Museum and George Washington's Mount Vernon capture your imagination. There's still lots to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of Tomb of the Unknowns, admire nature's wide array of creatures at National Zoological Park, get a sense of history and politics at White House, and get engrossed in the history at United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.

To find other places to visit and other tourist information, read Washington DC online attractions planner .

In July, plan for daily highs up to 89°F, and evening lows to 73°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 27th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
