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.
Family-friendly places like National Air and Space Museum and Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History will thrill your kids. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Washington DC: Gettysburg National Military Park (in Gettysburg), Clue IQ: An Escape Room Experience (in Frederick) and Shenandoah National Park (Old Rag Mountain Hike & Appalachian Trail). There's much more to do: admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Art, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at National Zoological Park, get advice or help at Library of Congress, and explore the activities along Tidal Basin.

To see where to stay, other places to visit, ratings, and tourist information, refer to the Washington DC online day trip planner .

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airports are Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, Washington Dulles International Airport and Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport. In October, plan for daily highs up to 25°C, and evening lows to 14°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 26th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
