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 inner history buff will appreciate The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and Capitol Hill. Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Rocky Point Beach and Park and North Beach. Explore Washington DC's surroundings by going to Harpers Ferry National Historical Park (in Harpers Ferry), Catoctin Creek Distillery (in Purcellville) and Gettysburg (Jennie Wade House, Shriver House Museum, & more). There's still lots to do: ponder the world of politics at Smithsonian Institution Building, see the interesting displays at National Air and Space Museum, hike along Old Rag Mountain Hike, and get engrossed in the history at National Museum of the Marine Corps.

For maps, reviews, where to stay, and tourist information, refer to the Washington DC tour itinerary maker tool .

If you are flying in from Cayman Islands, the closest major airports are Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, Washington Dulles International Airport and Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport. In August, plan for daily highs up to 36°C, and evening lows to 25°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 8th (Sun) to allow time to travel back home.
