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 Gettysburg National Military Park. Take a break from the city and head to National Zoological Park and Tidal Basin. Step out of Washington DC with an excursion to Old Rag Mountain Hike in Shenandoah National Park--about 2 hours away. The adventure continues: examine the collection at National Air and Space Museum, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Washington National Cathedral, and explore the world behind art at National Gallery of Art.
