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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Washington DC: Gettysburg (Gettysburg National Cemetery, Devils Den, & more), Roddy Road Covered Bridge (in Thurmont) and Knill's Farm Market (in Mount Airy). And it doesn't end there: examine the collection at National Air and Space Museum, get advice or help at Library of Congress, ponder the world of politics at White House, and get a new perspective on nature at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History.
