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.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Shriver House Museum and Gettysburg Museum of History. For shopping fun, head to Olivia Macaron or Fell's Point. Change things up with these side-trips from Washington DC: Copper Fox Distillery (in Sperryville), Harpers Ferry National Historical Park (in Harpers Ferry) and Skyline Drive (in Shenandoah National Park). On the 15th (Wed), spend a day delving into the history of Antietam National Battlefield. There's lots more to do: take a stroll through Annapolis Historic District, contemplate the long history of Jennie Wade House, take an in-depth tour of National Portrait Gallery, and learn about all things military at U.S. Naval Academy.

In May, plan for daily highs up to 76°F, and evening lows to 58°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 18th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
