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.
Visit Arlington National Cemetery and George Washington's Mount Vernon for their historical value. Do your shopping at Eastern Market and Downtown Silver Spring. Venture out of the city with trips to Harpers Ferry National Historical Park (in Harpers Ferry) and Antietam National Battlefield (in Sharpsburg). There's lots more to do: examine the collection at National Air and Space Museum, get to know the fascinating history of Tomb of the Unknowns, explore and take pictures at National Mall, and get a new perspective on nature at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History.

To find maps, more things to do, other places to visit, and other tourist information, go to the Washington DC travel route planning site .

In June, daily temperatures in Washington DC can reach 86°F, while at night they dip to 69°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 29th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
