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 some historical perspective at Ford's Theatre and Old Town. Get out of town with these interesting Washington DC side-trips: Gettysburg (Gettysburg National Military Park & Eisenhower National Historic Site) and Horseshoe Casino (in Baltimore). There's lots more to do: explore the world behind art at National Gallery of Art, meet the residents at National Zoological Park, pause for some photo ops at Washington Monument, and get a new perspective on nature at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History.

To see ratings, traveler tips, reviews, and tourist information, go to the Washington DC visit planning app.

Expect a daytime high around 71°F in October, and nighttime lows around 54°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 15th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
