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 cultural itinerary includes sights like Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum and Gettysburg National Cemetery. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Skyline Drive and U.S. Naval Academy. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Washington DC: Harpers Ferry National Historical Park (in Harpers Ferry), Antietam National Battlefield (in Sharpsburg) and Gettysburg (Jennie Wade House, Shriver House Museum, & more). Next up on the itinerary: wander the streets of Old Town, get to know the fascinating history of Capitol Hill, take in the history at Fort McHenry National Monument, and examine the collection at Smithsonian Institution Building.

To find reviews, other places to visit, where to stay, and more tourist information, use the Washington DC day trip tool .

Expect a daytime high around 82°F in September, and nighttime lows around 65°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 29th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
