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.

There's lots more to do: examine the collection at National Air and Space Museum, take an in-depth tour of United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, pause for some photo ops at Washington Monument, and get a new perspective on nature at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History.
