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.
For shopping fun, head to Fell's Point or Choptank Charlie's Emporium. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Stony Man Mountain Hike and Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge. Change things up with these side-trips from Washington DC: Antietam National Battlefield (in Sharpsburg), Harpers Ferry National Historical Park (in Harpers Ferry) and Shenandoah National Park (Skyline Drive & Old Rag Mountain Hike). Spend the 28th (Tue) exploring nature at Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts. There's much more to do: take in nature's colorful creations at U.S. National Arboretum, brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Sagamore Spirit Distillery, see the interesting displays at National Air and Space Museum, and get the lay of the land with Walking tours.
