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.
Shop till you drop at Eastern Market and Takoma Park Farmers Market. Let the collections at National Air and Space Museum and United States Holocaust Memorial Museum capture your imagination. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Washington DC: Antietam National Battlefield (in Sharpsburg), Gettysburg (The Lion Potter of Gettysburg & Gettysburg National Military Park) and Adkins Arboretum (in Ridgely). There's still lots to do: explore the world behind art at National Gallery of Art, identify plant and animal life at Scott's Run Nature Preserve, pause for some photo ops at Washington Monument, and learn more about the world around you at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History.

To see other places to visit, photos, more things to do, and more tourist information, read Washington DC trip itinerary planning site.

In July in Washington DC, expect temperatures between °F during the day and °F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 9th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
