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.
Visit Antietam National Battlefield and Harpers Ferry National Historical Park for their historical value. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Betterton Beach and R.H. Ballard Shop & Gallery. Change things up with these side-trips from Washington DC: Wine Loves Chocolate (in Washington), Skyline Drive (in Shenandoah National Park) and Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum (in St. Michaels). And it doesn't end there: take a stroll through Fell's Point, steep yourself in history at Jennie Wade House, explore the different monuments and memorials at Gettysburg National Cemetery, and explore the world behind art at National Portrait Gallery.

November in Washington DC sees daily highs of 17°C and lows of 6°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 19th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
