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 some cultural insight at Gettysburg National Military Park and United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. Washington National Cathedral and National Mall will appeal to history buffs. Explore Washington DC's surroundings by going to National Museum of the Marine Corps (in Triangle), Gettysburg (Victorian Photography Studio, Gettysburg Museum & Visitor Center, & more) and Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center (in Chantilly). The adventure continues: see the interesting displays at National Air and Space Museum, ponder the world of politics at White House, get to know the fascinating history of Tomb of the Unknowns, and get a new perspective on nature at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History.
