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.
Bring the kids along to National Air and Space Museum and The Adventure Park at Sandy Spring. Venture out of the city with trips to Gettysburg National Military Park (in Gettysburg) and Horseshoe Casino (in Baltimore). There's much more to do: learn more about the world around you at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, get a sense of history and politics at White House, pause for some photo ops at National World War II Memorial, and see the interesting displays at United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.

For maps, reviews, photos, and tourist information, use the Washington DC trip planner.

In July, plan for daily highs up to 89°F, and evening lows to 73°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 7th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
