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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Antietam National Battlefield and Old Town. National Air and Space Museum and National Gallery of Art will appeal to museum buffs. Change things up with these side-trips from Washington DC: Gettysburg (Eisenhower National Historic Site, Gettysburg National Cemetery, & more), U.S. Naval Academy (in Annapolis) and Adkins Arboretum (in Ridgely). Spend the 18th (Thu) exploring nature at Harpers Ferry National Historical Park. There's lots more to do: take a stroll through Fell's Point, identify plant and animal life at Elizabeth Furnace Recreation Area, get to know the fascinating history of Capitol Hill, and shop like a local with R.H. Ballard Shop & Gallery.
