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.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Calvert Marine Museum and Drum Point Lighthouse and National Museum of the Marine Corps. Museum-lovers will appreciate Shriver House Museum and National Portrait Gallery. Venture out of the city with trips to U.S. Naval Academy (in Annapolis), Shenandoah National Park (Skyline Drive & Old Rag Mountain Hike) and Fort McHenry National Monument (in Baltimore). On the 19th (Tue), spend a day delving into the history of Antietam National Battlefield. Spend the 18th (Mon) exploring nature at Harpers Ferry National Historical Park. And it doesn't end there: appreciate the extensive heritage of The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, take a stroll through Capitol Hill, examine the collection at National Air and Space Museum, and admire the masterpieces at Hillwood Estate, Museum & Gardens.
