I have just booked some flights for the end of July. I'll be arriving in Chicago on a Wednesday evening at 7:15pm and flying back to Europe from Washington DC on Thursday afternoon the following week.
The original plan was to split my time between Chicago and Washington DC.
How would you split your time? How long shall I stay in DC? After what I've read about the heat and humidity in DC, I'm a bit worried. A friend also recommended Chesapeake Bay.
What do you think of the idea of spending 2-3 nights in Toronto in between?
I know this is Washington's forum, but some advice on the overall itinerary would be appreciated.
