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.
Capitol Hill and Old Town will appeal to history buffs. Explore hidden gems such as Harpers Ferry National Historical Park and National Portrait Gallery. Step out of Washington DC with an excursion to Annapolis Historic District in Annapolis--about 1h 10 min away. There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at National Air and Space Museum, pause for some photo ops at Vietnam Veterans Memorial, appreciate the extensive heritage of Tomb of the Unknowns, and take a stroll through Georgetown.

To find ratings, other places to visit, where to stay, and other tourist information, refer to the Washington DC trip itinerary planner.

October in Washington DC sees daily highs of 71°F and lows of 54°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 27th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
