Washington DC ©
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.
Kids will appreciate attractions like National Air and Space Museum and National Gallery of Art. Appreciate the collections at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History and The Delaplaine Visual Arts Education Center. Explore Washington DC's surroundings by going to Centennial Park (in Ellicott City), Old Rag Mountain Hike (in Shenandoah National Park) and Antietam National Battlefield (in Sharpsburg). There's much more to do: take in the history at Gettysburg National Military Park, contemplate the long history of Audubon Naturalist Society Woodend Sanctuary, take an in-depth tour of United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, and trek along Stony Man Mountain Overlook.

For ratings, reviews, maps, and more tourist information, read Washington DC sightseeing planner.

Expect a daytime high around °F in July, and nighttime lows around °F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
