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.
You'll explore and learn at U.S. Naval Academy and Smithsonian Institution Building. Step off the beaten path and head to Fell's Point and Harpers Ferry National Historical Park. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Washington DC: Cambridge (Choptank River Lighthouse & Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge), Shenandoah National Park (Skyline Drive & Elkwallow Picnic Area) and Antietam National Battlefield (in Sharpsburg). The adventure continues: wander the streets of Old Town, take in the exciting artwork at Hopkins Original Art, learn about winemaking at The Hague Winery, and get engrossed in the history at Essex County Museum and Historical Society.
