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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Loy's Station Covered Bridge (in Thurmont), Baltimore (Oriole Park at Camden Yards, Sagamore Spirit Distillery, &more) and Gettysburg (Association of Licensed Battlefield Guides, Little Round Top, &more). And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at National Air and Space Museum, ponder the world of politics at White House, pause for some photo ops at Vietnam Veterans Memorial, and take an in-depth tour of United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.
