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.
Escape the urban bustle at National Zoological Park and Tidal Basin. Let the collections at National Air and Space Museum and Gettysburg Museum & Visitor Center capture your imagination. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Washington DC: The Preppy Redneck (in St. Michaels), Horseshoe Casino (in Baltimore) and Gettysburg (The Lion Potter of Gettysburg & Gettysburg National Military Park). There's still lots to do: hunt for treasures at Takoma Park Farmers Market, learn more about the world around you at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, explore the world behind art at National Gallery of Art, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Capitol Hill.
