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.
Shop till you drop at Eastern Market and Madame Tussauds DC. Get some cultural insight at National Air and Space Museum and Gettysburg National Military Park. Get out of town with these interesting Washington DC side-trips: Markets at Shrewsbury (in Glen Rock), Artworks (in Gettysburg) and Jug Bay Wetlands Sanctuary (in Lothian). And it doesn't end there: explore the world behind art at National Gallery of Art, appreciate the history behind Vietnam Veterans Memorial, identify plant and animal life at Loch Raven Reservoir, and gain insight at Gulf Branch Nature Center.

Plan my trip to Washington DC with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

In September, daytime highs in Washington DC are 82°F, while nighttime lows are 65°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 28th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
