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 a sense of the local culture at Gettysburg National Military Park and Arlington National Cemetery. Museum-lovers will get to explore National Air and Space Museum and National Gallery of Art. Step out of Washington DC with an excursion to The Lion Potter of Gettysburg in Gettysburg--about 1h 45 min away. There's much more to do: hunt for treasures at Takoma Park Farmers Market, appreciate the extensive heritage of Tomb of the Unknowns, contemplate the long history of Georgetown University, and get engrossed in the history at Newseum.
