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.
National Air and Space Museum and National Gallery of Art will appeal to museum buffs. Visit Arlington National Cemetery and Tomb of the Unknowns for their historical value. There's still lots to do: explore the activities along Tidal Basin, contemplate the long history of Georgetown University, appreciate the history behind Lincoln Memorial, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Washington National Cathedral.
