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.
Museum-lovers will appreciate National Air and Space Museum and National Gallery of Art. Visiting Breezy Point Beach and Campground and National Zoological Park will get you outdoors. There's still lots to do: contemplate the waterfront views at Tidal Basin, pause for some photo ops at Lincoln Memorial, take an in-depth tour of United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, and get a new perspective on nature at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History.
