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.
Explore Washington DC's surroundings by going to Gettysburg (Gettysburg National Cemetery & Gettysburg National Military Park), Clue IQ: An Escape Room Experience (in Frederick) and Stony Man Mountain Hike (in Luray). There's still lots to do: examine the collection at National Air and Space Museum, take an in-depth tour of United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, admire nature's wide array of creatures at National Zoological Park, and learn more about the world around you at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History.

In October, daily temperatures in Washington DC can reach 71°F, while at night they dip to 54°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 12th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
