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.
Discover out-of-the-way places like National Museum of African American History and Culture and Capitol Hill. Get a sense of the local culture at The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and Georgetown. Change things up with these side-trips from Washington DC: Roddy Road Covered Bridge (in Thurmont), Gettysburg (Jennie Wade House, Eisenhower National Historic Site, & more) and Antietam National Battlefield (in Sharpsburg). There's much more to do: explore the world behind art at Hillwood Estate, Museum & Gardens, get the lay of the land with Walking tours, take an in-depth tour of National Museum of the Marine Corps, and ponder the world of politics at Smithsonian Institution Building.

If you are flying in from Peru, the closest major airports are Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, Washington Dulles International Airport and Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport. Expect a daytime high around 17°C in November, and nighttime lows around 6°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 25th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
