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.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes National Mall, Ford's Theatre and The National Archives Museum. Let the collections at National Air and Space Museum and Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History capture your imagination. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Gettysburg National Military Park and Old Town. Get out of town with these interesting Washington DC side-trips: Eisenhower National Historic Site (in Gettysburg) and Skyline Drive (in Shenandoah National Park). There's still lots to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Washington National Cathedral, appreciate the history behind Vietnam Veterans Memorial, head off the coast to Theodore Roosevelt Island Park, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Capitol Hill.

In October, plan for daily highs up to 71°F, and evening lows to 54°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 25th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
