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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Calvert Marine Museum and Drum Point Lighthouse and Chatham Manor. Museum-lovers will get to explore Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum and Smithsonian American Art Museum. Get out of town with these interesting Washington DC side-trips: James Madison's Montpelier (in Montpelier Station), Chatham Manor (in Fredericksburg) and Chancellorsville Battlefield Visitor Center (in Spotsylvania). Spend the 1st (Mon) exploring nature at Harpers Ferry National Historical Park. And it doesn't end there: brush up on your military savvy at National Museum of the Marine Corps, explore the world behind art at National Portrait Gallery, identify plant and animal life at Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge, and step into the grandiose world of Smithsonian Institution Building.
