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.
Get out of town with these interesting Washington DC side-trips: Baltimore (Horseshoe Casino Baltimore & Oriole Park at Camden Yards). And it doesn't end there: examine the collection at National Air and Space Museum, get a new perspective on nature at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, get a sense of history and politics at United States Capitol, and browse the collection at Library of Congress.
