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 Walking tours and Antietam National Battlefield. Change things up with a short trip to Little Round Top in Gettysburg (about 1h 40 min away). And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at National Air and Space Museum, pause for some photo ops at Vietnam Veterans Memorial, admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Art, and admire the natural beauty at Hillwood Estate, Museum & Gardens.

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major airports are Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, Washington Dulles International Airport and Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport. In September in Washington DC, expect temperatures between 32°C during the day and 21°C at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 29th (Tue) so you can travel back home.
