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: Billy Goat Trail (in Potomac), Gettysburg (Association of Licensed Battlefield Guides & Gettysburg National Military Park) and National Museum of the Marine Corps (in Triangle). Spend the 22nd (Sun) exploring nature at Great Falls Park. There's still lots to do: admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Art, examine the collection at United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, pause for some serene contemplation at Washington National Cathedral, and get a sense of history and politics at The White House.

Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Take a break from New York City with a short trip to Bronx Zoo in Bronx, about 42 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: take in the pleasant sights at Central Park, admire the striking features of Empire State Building, explore the world behind art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and get a new perspective on nature at American Museum of Natural History.
