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.
Step out of the city life by going to Audubon Naturalist Society Woodend Sanctuary and National Zoological Park. Popular historic sites such as Gettysburg National Military Park and Tomb of the Unknowns are in your itinerary. Change things up with these side-trips from Washington DC: Adkins Arboretum (in Ridgely), Shenandoah National Park (Old Rag Mountain Hike & Skyline Drive) and McKee-Beshers Wildlife Management Area (in Poolesville). On the 17th (Sat), spend a day delving into the history of Antietam National Battlefield. Spend the 20th (Tue) exploring nature at Harpers Ferry National Historical Park. There's lots more to do: see the interesting displays at National Air and Space Museum, look for all kinds of wild species at Scott's Run Nature Preserve, take in the spiritual surroundings of Washington National Cathedral, and hike along Stony Man Mountain Hike.

If you are flying in from Israel, the closest major airports are Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, Washington Dulles International Airport and Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport. In November, plan for daily highs up to 17°C, and evening lows to 6°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 23rd (Fri) so you can travel back home.
