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.
Get out of town with these interesting Washington DC side-trips: Gettysburg (Gettysburg National Military Park, Victorian Photography Studio, & more) and Horseshoe Casino (in Baltimore). There's much more to do: examine the collection at National Air and Space Museum, contemplate the waterfront views at Tidal Basin, pause for some photo ops at Lincoln Memorial, and admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Art.

For other places to visit, reviews, where to stay, and more tourist information, read Washington DC attractions planner.

In May, daily temperatures in Washington DC can reach 76°F, while at night they dip to 58°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 19th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
