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.
Take a break from the city and head to Tidal Basin and Antietam National Battlefield. Visit Gettysburg National Military Park and Washington National Cathedral for their historical value. Venture out of the city with trips to Baltimore (Fort McHenry National Monument & Horseshoe Casino), Harpers Ferry National Historical Park (in Harpers Ferry) and Worthington Manor Golf Club (in Urbana). The adventure continues: examine the collection at National Air and Space Museum, admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Art, contemplate the long history of Arlington National Cemetery, and admire nature's wide array of creatures at National Zoological Park.
