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.
Visiting Antietam National Battlefield and Old Rag Mountain Hike will get you outdoors. United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History will appeal to museum buffs. Change things up with these side-trips from Washington DC: Baltimore (Horseshoe Casino, Fell's Point, & more), Loch Raven Reservoir (in Phoenix) and Gettysburg (Gettysburg National Military Park, Little Round Top, & more). Spend the 20th (Fri) exploring nature at Harpers Ferry National Historical Park. There's still lots to do: admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Art, contemplate the waterfront views at Tidal Basin, identify plant and animal life at Jug Bay Wetlands Sanctuary, and stroll the grounds of Arlington National Cemetery.

If you are flying in from Brazil, 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 23rd (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
