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 explore and learn at National Air and Space Museum and Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History. Get outdoors at Antietam National Battlefield and National Zoological Park. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Washington DC: Jug Bay Wetlands Sanctuary (in Lothian), Hidden Oaks Nature Center (in Annandale) and George Washington's Mount Vernon (in Mount Vernon). There's still lots to do: stroll the grounds of Arlington National Cemetery, pause for some serene contemplation at Washington National Cathedral, appreciate the extensive heritage of Tomb of the Unknowns, and explore the activities along Tidal Basin.

To find reviews, photos, and more tourist information, read our Washington DC sightseeing planner.

Expect a daytime high around 86°F in June, and nighttime lows around 69°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 15th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
