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.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Gettysburg National Military Park and Antietam National Battlefield. Kids will appreciate attractions like National Air and Space Museum and Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History. Explore Washington DC's surroundings by going to Old Rag Mountain Hike (in Shenandoah National Park), Loch Raven Reservoir (in Phoenix) and Saint Alphonsus Church (in Baltimore). And it doesn't end there: admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Art, look for all kinds of wild species at Phillips Wharf Environmental Center, admire the striking features of Washington National Cathedral, and get engrossed in the history at Newseum.

Make your Washington DC itinerary with Inspirock to find out what to see and where to go.

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airports are Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, Washington Dulles International Airport and Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport. In September, plan for daily highs up to 32°C, and evening lows to 21°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 8th (Sun) to allow time to travel back home.
