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 list of things to see and do now includes International Spy Museum, National World War II Memorial, Bureau of Engraving and Printing, and other attractions. Appreciate the collections at National Air and Space Museum and Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History. Washington National Cathedral and The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Change things up with these side-trips from Washington DC: Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center (in Chantilly) and George Washington's Mount Vernon (in Mount Vernon). There's much more to do: admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Art, take an in-depth tour of Newseum, see the interesting displays at The National Archives Museum, and steep yourself in history at Georgetown University.

To see photos, ratings, reviews, and more tourist information, read Washington DC trip planner .

In November, plan for daily highs up to 59°F, and evening lows to 42°F. On the 16th (Sat), wrap the sightseeing up by early afternoon so you can travel back home.
