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 Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History as well as National Portrait Gallery. The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and Hillwood Estate, Museum & Gardens will appeal to history buffs. National Air and Space Museum and National Gallery of Art will appeal to museum buffs. Change things up with these side-trips from Washington DC: Harpers Ferry National Historical Park (in Harpers Ferry), Antietam National Battlefield (in Sharpsburg) and National Museum of the Marine Corps (in Triangle). There's still lots to do: get engrossed in the history at National Museum of African American History and Culture, examine the collection at Luray Valley Museum & Shenandoah Heritage Village, pause for some photo ops at Vietnam Veterans Memorial, and stroll through Stony Man Mountain Overlook.

To find more things to do, photos, and other tourist information, use the Washington DC online trip builder.

In October, plan for daily highs up to 71°F, and evening lows to 54°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 17th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
