Washington DC

Washington DC ©
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.
Escape the urban bustle at Antietam National Battlefield and Fort McHenry National Monument. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Harpers Ferry National Historical Park and Capitol Hill. Venture out of the city with trips to Copper Fox Distillery (in Sperryville), Skyline Drive (in Shenandoah National Park) and Gettysburg (Gettysburg National Military Park, Gettysburg National Cemetery, & more). There's much more to do: examine the collection at National Air and Space Museum, contemplate the long history of Old Town, appreciate the extensive heritage of Tomb of the Unknowns, and get engrossed in the history at United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.
