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've added Korean War Veterans Memorial, National Museum of the American Indian, National Museum of American History, and other attractions to your itinerary. Gettysburg National Military Park and Gettysburg National Cemetery will appeal to history buffs. Appreciate the collections at National Air and Space Museum and United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. Change things up with these side-trips from Washington DC: Mount Vernon Trail (in Arlington) and Gettysburg National Military Park Museum & Visitor Center (in Gettysburg). There's lots more to do: contemplate the long history of Arlington National Cemetery, examine the collection at The National Archives Museum, pause for some photo ops at National World War II Memorial, and get a new perspective on nature at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History.
