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.
Visit Calvert Marine Museum and Drum Point Lighthouse and Chancellorsville Battlefield Visitor Center for their historical value. Museum of the Shenandoah Valley and Jennie Wade House will appeal to museum buffs. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Washington DC: James Madison's Montpelier (in Montpelier Station), Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum (in St. Michaels) and Fredericksburg (Chatham Manor & Chatham Manor). On the 12th (Mon), spend a day delving into the history of Antietam National Battlefield. Spend the 11th (Sun) exploring nature at Harpers Ferry National Historical Park. There's still lots to do: learn about all things military at National Museum of the Marine Corps, stroll the grounds of Gettysburg National Cemetery, admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Art, and see the interesting displays at National Air and Space Museum.
