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 list of things to see and do now includes Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, National Museum of Women in the Arts, Ford's Theatre, and other attractions. Do some cultural sightseeing at National Gallery of Art and Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Eastern Market and Politics and Prose. There's lots more to do: explore the activities along Tidal Basin, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Washington National Cathedral, contemplate the long history of Arlington National Cemetery, and step off the mainland to explore Theodore Roosevelt Island Park.

To find reviews, other places to visit, maps, and tourist information, go to the Washington DC online driving holiday planner .

In October, plan for daily highs up to 71°F, and evening lows to 54°F. You will have some time to spend on the 9th (Tue) before leaving for home.
