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.
Your list of things to see and do now includes Washington National Cathedral, District Wharf, International Spy Museum, and other attractions. National Air and Space Museum and The National Archives Museum are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Visit Arlington National Cemetery and The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier for their historical value. There's much more to do: pause for some photo ops at Vietnam Veterans Memorial, ponder the world of politics at United States Capitol, and don't miss a visit to John F. Kennedy Grave Site.

To see reviews, maps, where to stay, and more tourist information, go to the Washington DC trip planner.

Expect a daytime high around 89°F in July, and nighttime lows around 73°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 4th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
