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.
Antietam National Battlefield and Gettysburg National Military Park are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Head to Eastern Market and Torpedo Factory Art Centerfor plenty of shopping. Get out of town with these interesting Washington DC side-trips: Bloomery Plantation Distillery (in Charles Town), Loch Raven Reservoir (in Phoenix) and Baltimore (Sagamore Spirit Distillery & Horseshoe Casino). There's much more to do: examine the collection at National Air and Space Museum, get a new perspective on nature at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, explore the different monuments and memorials at Arlington National Cemetery, and pause for some photo ops at Vietnam Veterans Memorial.
