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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Washington DC: Horseshoe Casino (in Baltimore), Gettysburg (Gettysburg National Cemetery, Gettysburg National Military Park, & more) and Roddy Road Covered Bridge (in Thurmont). There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at National Air and Space Museum, get a sense of history and politics at United States Capitol, appreciate the history behind National World War II Memorial, and browse the collection at Library of Congress.

For more things to do, other places to visit, reviews, and more tourist information, read our Washington DC road trip website .

If you are flying in from India, the closest major airports are Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, Washington Dulles International Airport and Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport. August in Washington DC sees daily highs of 36°C and lows of 25°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 12th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
