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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Horseshoe Casino Baltimore (in Baltimore), Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center (in Chantilly) and Gettysburg (Gettysburg National Military Park, Association of Licensed Battlefield Guides, & more). And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at National Air and Space Museum, appreciate the history behind Washington Monument, take an in-depth tour of United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, and get a sense of history and politics at Library of Congress.
