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.
Explore Washington DC's surroundings by going to Gettysburg National Military Park (in Gettysburg), The Adventure Park at Sandy Spring (in Sandy Spring) and Horseshoe Casino (in Baltimore). There's much more to do: see the interesting displays at National Air and Space Museum, ponder the world of politics at United States Capitol, get a new perspective on nature at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, and pause for some photo ops at Vietnam Veterans Memorial.

To find traveler tips, maps, more things to do, and tourist information, read our Washington DC travel planner.

If you are flying in from Bahrain, the closest major airports are Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, Washington Dulles International Airport and Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport. In July, plan for daily highs up to 37°C, and evening lows to 26°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 15th (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
