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 some cultural insight at Fell's Point and Old Town. Popular historic sites such as Gettysburg National Military Park and Eisenhower National Historic Site are in your itinerary. Take a break from Washington DC with a short trip to Skyline Drive in Shenandoah National Park, about 2 hours away. There's lots more to do: examine the collection at National Air and Space Museum, look for gifts at Politics and Prose, pause for some photo ops at Vietnam Veterans Memorial, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Capitol Hill.
