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.
National Air and Space Museum and Washington National Cathedral are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Gettysburg National Military Park and Arlington National Cemetery. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Washington DC: George Washington's Mount Vernon (in Mount Vernon) and Association of Licensed Battlefield Guides (in Gettysburg). And it doesn't end there: appreciate the extensive heritage of The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, take an in-depth tour of United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, examine the collection at The National Archives Museum, and explore the world behind art at National Gallery of Art.

For where to stay, photos, more things to do, and tourist information, you can read our Washington DC sightseeing planner.

Expect a daytime high around 59°F in November, and nighttime lows around 42°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 13th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
