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.
Popular historic sites such as Chatham Manor and Manassas National Battlefield Park are in your itinerary. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Museum of the Shenandoah Valley and Gettysburg Diorama. Explore Washington DC's surroundings by going to U.S. Naval Academy (in Annapolis), Frederick (Historic Downtown Frederick & National Museum of Civil War Medicine) and Baltimore (The Walters Art Museum & Fort McHenry National Monument). There's much more to do: take an in-depth tour of National Museum of African American History and Culture, wander the streets of Capitol Hill, stroll the grounds of Gettysburg National Cemetery, and take in nature's colorful creations at Hillwood Estate, Museum & Gardens.

To see traveler tips, more things to do, where to stay, and tourist information, refer to the Washington DC trip planner .

In July, daytime highs in Washington DC are 89°F, while nighttime lows are 73°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 20th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
