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'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center and Hillwood Estate, Museum & Gardens. Get some historical perspective at Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception and The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Washington DC: National Museum of the Marine Corps (in Triangle), St George's Episcopal Church (in Fredericksburg) and Gettysburg (Gettysburg National Cemetery & Gettysburg National Military Park Museum & Visitor Center). And it doesn't end there: admire the masterpieces at The Walters Art Museum, steep yourself in history at Georgetown University, take an in-depth tour of Smithsonian American Art Museum, and explore the striking landscape of Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine.

Theme Park Capital of the World

For most people, any mention of Orlando immediately conjures up images of sprawling theme parks filled with characters plucked right out of popular animated movies.
Visiting Blue Spring State Park and Crystal River Preserve State Park will get you outdoors. Ponce de Leon Inlet Lighthouse & Museum and Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Venture out of the city with trips to Stetson Mansion (in DeLand), Kayaking & Canoeing (in Crystal River) and Eisenhower Regional Recreation Center (in The Villages). There's much more to do: learn more about the world around you at SKELETONS: Museum of Osteology, don't miss a visit to International Drive, try out the rides at Happily Ever After Fireworks, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Basilica of the National Shrine of Mary, Queen of the Universe.
