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. For shopping fun, head to Madame Tussauds DC or Eastern Market. Change things up with these side-trips from Washington DC: Gettysburg National Military Park (in Gettysburg), Horseshoe Casino (in Baltimore) and Desert Rose Ranch & Winery (in Hume). There's still lots to do: admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Art, wander the streets of Old Town, learn about winemaking at The Hague Winery, and get to know the fascinating history of Tomb of the Unknowns.

Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Washington DC trip simple and quick.

If you are flying in from France, the closest major airports are Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, Washington Dulles International Airport and Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport. May in Washington DC sees daily highs of 28°C and lows of 17°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 5th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
