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.
Visiting Old Rag Mountain Hike and Appalachian Trail will get you outdoors. Let the collections at National Air and Space Museum and Riversdale House Museum capture your imagination. Venture out of the city with trips to Antietam National Battlefield (in Sharpsburg), Mount Vernon Trail (in Arlington) and Stony Man Mountain Hike (in Luray). And it doesn't end there: witness the site of a historic battle at Gettysburg National Military Park, contemplate the long history of Arlington National Cemetery, appreciate the extensive heritage of The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, and make a trip to Devils Den.

In October in Washington DC, expect temperatures between 71°F during the day and 54°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 11th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
