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.
Do your shopping at Madame Tussauds DC and A&A Village Treasures. You'll explore and learn at National Air and Space Museum and United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. Change things up with these side-trips from Washington DC: Antietam National Battlefield (in Sharpsburg), Baltimore (Sagamore Spirit Distillery & Horseshoe Casino) and The Point (in Harpers Ferry). There's still lots to do: learn more about the world around you at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, take an in-depth tour of National Portrait Gallery, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Washington National Cathedral, and steep yourself in history at Audubon Naturalist Society Woodend Sanctuary.

To find traveler tips, maps, ratings, and more tourist information, refer to the Washington DC trip maker website.

Pittsburgh to Washington DC is an approximately 4-hour flight. You can also drive; or take a bus. Plan for somewhat warmer temperatures traveling from Pittsburgh in July, with highs in Washington DC at °F and lows at °F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 7th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
