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.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Anderson House as well as National Museum of American History. Museum-lovers will appreciate National Air and Space Museum and National Gallery of Art. Arlington National Cemetery and George Washington's Mount Vernon will appeal to history buffs. Venture out of the city with trips to Wat Thai of Washington, D.C. (in Silver Spring), Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center (in Chantilly) and National Museum of the Marine Corps (in Triangle). There's still lots to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Washington National Cathedral, learn more about the world around you at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, appreciate the history behind Lincoln Memorial, and take an in-depth tour of Newseum.

In June, daytime highs in Washington DC are 86°F, while nighttime lows are 69°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 19th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
