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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Washington DC: Copper Fox Distillery (in Sperryville), Mount Vernon Trail (in Arlington) and Fredericksburg (Kenmore Plantation and Gardens & Chatham Manor). The adventure continues: see the interesting displays at National Air and Space Museum, pause for some photo ops at Lincoln Memorial, ponder the world of politics at United States Capitol, and get your bearings at Library of Congress.

To see photos, traveler tips, where to stay, and more tourist information, you can read our Washington DC road trip tool .

In June, plan for daily highs up to 86°F, and evening lows to 69°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 27th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
