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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Horseshoe Casino (in Baltimore) and Gettysburg (Gettysburg National Military Park & Victorian Photography Studio). And it doesn't end there: examine the collection at National Air and Space Museum, ponder the world of politics at White House, admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Art, and browse the collection at Library of Congress.

For traveler tips, where to stay, reviews, and other tourist information, you can read our Washington DC trip itinerary maker website .

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. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 17th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
