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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Washington DC: Gettysburg (Gettysburg National Military Park, Association of Licensed Battlefield Guides, & more), National Museum of the Marine Corps (in Triangle) and Baltimore (Horseshoe Casino Baltimore & Oriole Park at Camden Yards). There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum, ponder the world of politics at The White House, learn more about the world around you at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, and pause for some photo ops at Washington Monument.

To see other places to visit, more things to do, reviews, and tourist information, you can read our Washington DC travel itinerary planner.

If you are flying in from Austria, the closest major airports are Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, Washington Dulles International Airport, Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport and Andrews Air Force Base. Expect a daytime high around 24°C in October, and nighttime lows around 14°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 7th (Tue) so you can travel back home.
