New York & Washington DC very early pre-planning

Jump to last reply

DH and I are hoping to be at a wedding in Washington DC next October 12th and would like to use the opportunity to take about a fortnight to do a New York and Washington trip.

My initial thoughts are to fly London to New York perhaps Tuesday 1st October, Amtrak to Washington DC early the following week and fly home, after the wedding, on the 15th October. We're not set on the dates - we could just as easily fly into Washington a couple of days before the wedding and fly home from New York on the 24th. Am I right in thinking that the days will be slightly longer and slightly warmer earlier in October?

Having booked a short notice trip to San Francisco a couple of years ago and had an impossible time trying to find a hotel due to the Oracle conference, are there any conferences etc in either city that I should be aware of or major public holidays that may affect hotel availability or anything else.

Any thoughts on my timings? Or anything else that I should consider - autumn colours, for example.

Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
