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 National Gallery of Art will appeal to museum buffs. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Gettysburg National Military Park and Arlington National Cemetery. Get out of town with these interesting Washington DC side-trips: Gettysburg (Gettysburg National Cemetery & Little Round Top) and Antietam National Battlefield (in Sharpsburg). There's still lots to do: learn more about the world around you at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, gain insight at Georgetown University, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at National Zoological Park, and get engrossed in the history at United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.

To see more things to do, other places to visit, ratings, and tourist information, use the Washington DC trip planner.

In October in Washington DC, expect temperatures between °F during the day and °F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 21st (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
