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.
Museum-lovers will appreciate National Air and Space Museum and United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. Get in touch with nature at National Zoological Park and Harpers Ferry National Historical Park. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Washington DC: Antietam National Battlefield (in Sharpsburg), Horseshoe Casino (in Baltimore) and Gettysburg National Military Park (in Gettysburg). There's still lots to do: explore the activities along Tidal Basin, contemplate the long history of Audubon Naturalist Society Woodend Sanctuary, pause for some serene contemplation at Washington National Cathedral, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Tomb of the Unknowns.

To find where to stay, other places to visit, and tourist information, read Washington DC tour itinerary planner.

In November, plan for daily highs up to 59°F, and evening lows to 42°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 27th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
