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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Skyline Drive and Harpers Ferry National Historical Park. Change things up with a short trip to U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis (about 50 minutes away). There's lots more to do: see the interesting displays at National Air and Space Museum, take an in-depth tour of United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, learn more about the world around you at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, and admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Art.

To find other places to visit, photos, more things to do, and other tourist information, use the Washington DC trip itinerary builder website .

Expect a daytime high around 59°F in November, and nighttime lows around 42°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 18th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
