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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Gettysburg (Gettysburg National Military Park & Gettysburg National Military Park Museum & Visitor Center), Baltimore (Horseshoe Casino & Oriole Park at Camden Yards) and Roddy Road Covered Bridge (in Thurmont). There's lots more to do: see the interesting displays at National Air and Space Museum, get a new perspective on nature at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, pause for some serene contemplation at Washington National Cathedral, and explore the world behind art at National Gallery of Art.

To find other places to visit, reviews, more things to do, and other tourist information, use the Washington DC day trip planning site .

In June, plan for daily highs up to 86°F, and evening lows to 69°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 28th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
