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.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Antietam National Battlefield and Washington National Cathedral. National Air and Space Museum and National Gallery of Art will appeal to museum buffs. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Washington DC: Gettysburg National Military Park (in Gettysburg), Stony Man Mountain Hike (in Luray) and Baltimore (Fort McHenry National Monument & Horseshoe Casino Baltimore). There's lots more to do: explore the activities along Skyline Drive, learn more about the world around you at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, wander the streets of Old Town, and hike along Old Rag Mountain Hike.
