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 Air and Space Museum and United States Holocaust Memorial Museum will appeal to museum buffs. Get in touch with nature at Antietam National Battlefield and Tidal Basin. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Washington DC: Saint Alphonsus Church (in Baltimore), Gettysburg National Military Park (in Gettysburg) and Loch Raven Reservoir (in Phoenix). There's still lots to do: admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Art, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Washington National Cathedral, take an in-depth tour of Newseum, and explore and take pictures at Audubon Naturalist Society Woodend Sanctuary.
