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.
Family-friendly places like National Air and Space Museum and The Adventure Park at Sandy Spring will thrill your kids. Venture out of the city with trips to Horseshoe Casino (in Baltimore), Old Rag Mountain Hike (in Shenandoah National Park) and Gettysburg (Gettysburg National Cemetery, Victorian Photography Studio, & more). There's much more to do: learn more about the world around you at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, get engrossed in the history at United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, appreciate the history behind Vietnam Veterans Memorial, and get a sense of history and politics at United States Capitol.
