Washington DC ©
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.
The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and Washington National Cathedral will appeal to history buffs. National Air and Space Museum and National Museum of African American History and Culture are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Venture out of the city with trips to Harpers Ferry National Historical Park (in Harpers Ferry), Catoctin Creek Distillery (in Purcellville) and Gettysburg (Eisenhower National Historic Site, Gettysburg National Cemetery, & more). There's still lots to do: ponder the world of politics at Smithsonian Institution Building, admire the masterpieces at Smithsonian American Art Museum, take a stroll through Georgetown, and take in nature's colorful creations at U.S. National Arboretum.
