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 a sense of the local culture at Antietam National Battlefield and Gettysburg National Military Park. Visit Arlington National Cemetery and Confederate Trails of Gettysburg for their historical value. Venture out of the city with trips to Centennial Park (in Ellicott City), Baltimore (Fell's Point, Horseshoe Casino, & more) and Betterton Beach (in Betterton). The adventure continues: see the interesting displays at National Air and Space Museum, appreciate the extensive heritage of Tomb of the Unknowns, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Washington National Cathedral, and admire all the interesting features of Skyline Drive.
