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.
Family-friendly places like National Air and Space Museum and National Zoological Park will thrill your kids. Change things up with these side-trips from Washington DC: The Adventure Park at Sandy Spring (in Sandy Spring), Frederick (Clue IQ: An Escape Room Experience & Dragon Distillery, LLC) and Gettysburg (Gettysburg National Military Park & Gettysburg National Military Park Museum & Visitor Center). And it doesn't end there: learn more about the world around you at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, pause for some photo ops at Lincoln Memorial, get engrossed in the history at United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, and get a sense of history and politics at United States Capitol.
