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 National Museum of the United States Navy, Arlington National Cemetery, Tidal Basin, and other attractions. National Gallery of Art and The Phillips Collection are good opportunities to explore the local culture. There's much more to do: pause for some photo ops at Lincoln Memorial, steep yourself in history at Georgetown University, and make a trip to John F. Kennedy Grave Site.

To see where to stay, other places to visit, and more tourist information, read our Washington DC travel itinerary creator.

If you are flying in from France, the closest major airports are Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, Washington Dulles International Airport and Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport. In October, daily temperatures in Washington DC can reach 24°C, while at night they dip to 14°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 2nd (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
