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.
Museum-lovers will appreciate National Air and Space Museum and National Gallery of Art. Popular historic sites such as Gettysburg National Military Park and Antietam National Battlefield are in your itinerary. Change things up with these side-trips from Washington DC: Gettysburg (Little Round Top & Gettysburg National Cemetery), George Washington's Mount Vernon (in Mount Vernon) and Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center (in Chantilly). There's still lots to do: stroll the grounds of Arlington National Cemetery, examine the collection at The National Archives Museum, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at National Zoological Park, and appreciate the extensive heritage of National Mall.

To see ratings, reviews, and other tourist information, refer to the Washington DC journey website .

June in Washington DC sees daily highs of 86°F and lows of 69°F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 6th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
