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.
Popular historic sites such as Gettysburg National Military Park and James Madison's Montpelier are in your itinerary. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at National Air and Space Museum and Old Town. Change things up with these side-trips from Washington DC: Copper Fox Distillery (in Sperryville), Eisenhower National Historic Site (in Gettysburg) and Baltimore (Sagamore Spirit Distillery & Horseshoe Casino). And it doesn't end there: get engrossed in the history at United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, examine the collection at Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum, wander the streets of Annapolis Historic District, and learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at National Zoological Park.

Expect a daytime high around 89°F in July, and nighttime lows around 73°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 30th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
