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.
National Mall and Hillwood Estate, Museum & Gardens will appeal to history buffs. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center and Capitol Hill. Venture out of the city with trips to Gettysburg (Gettysburg National Cemetery & Gettysburg National Military Park Museum & Visitor Center), National Museum of the Marine Corps (in Triangle) and St George's Episcopal Church (in Fredericksburg). There's much more to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, explore the world behind art at National Portrait Gallery, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, and get engrossed in the history at Smithsonian American Art Museum.
