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.
Get some historical perspective at Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception and Manassas National Battlefield Park. Explore hidden gems such as Antietam National Battlefield and The Phillips Collection. Explore Washington DC's surroundings by going to Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge (in Cambridge), Phillips Wharf Environmental Center (in Tilghman) and Gettysburg (Eisenhower National Historic Site, Gettysburg Diorama, &more). The adventure continues: hike along Stony Man Mountain Overlook, brush up on your military savvy at National Museum of the Marine Corps, contemplate the waterfront views at Tidal Basin, and examine the collection at Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum.
