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.
Escape the urban bustle at Antietam National Battlefield and Stony Man Mountain Hike. Shop till you drop at Fell's Point and Eastern Market. Explore Washington DC's surroundings by going to Gettysburg National Military Park (in Gettysburg), Betterton Beach (in Betterton) and Sagamore Spirit Distillery (in Baltimore). There's still lots to do: examine the collection at National Air and Space Museum, take an in-depth tour of United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, get a new perspective on nature at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, and trek along Old Rag Mountain Hike.

For photos, other places to visit, reviews, and tourist information, read Washington DC trip planner.

In July, plan for daily highs up to 89°F, and evening lows to 73°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 3rd (Sat) so you can travel back home.
