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 a short trip to Gettysburg National Military Park in Gettysburg (about 1h 45 min away). There's still lots to do: examine the collection at National Air and Space Museum, admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Art, pause for some photo ops at Vietnam Veterans Memorial, and learn more about the world around you at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History.

To see photos, more things to do, ratings, and tourist information, read Washington DC tour itinerary maker app .

Expect a daytime high around 71°F in October, and nighttime lows around 54°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 17th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
