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.
Get some historical perspective at Capitol Hill and Fredericksburg & Spotsylvania National Military Park. Get a sense of the local culture at National Air and Space Museum and James Madison's Montpelier. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Washington DC: Sotterley Historic Plantation (in Hollywood), Perigeaux Vineyards & Winery (in Saint Leonard) and R.H. Ballard Shop & Gallery (in Washington). There's still lots to do: take a stroll through Old Town, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Art, and examine the collection at Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum.

Plan my trip to Washington DC with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

October in Washington DC sees daily highs of °C and lows of °C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 2nd (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
