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 day by day itinerary now includes United States Capitol as well as White House. Museum-lovers will get to explore Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center and National Air and Space Museum. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Arlington National Cemetery and The Arts Center in Orange. Get out of town with these interesting Washington DC side-trips: Moving Meadows Farm (in Culpeper), Hopkins Original Art (in St. Michaels) and Maryland Federation of Art (in Annapolis). There's much more to do: explore the world behind art at National Gallery of Art, take in the exciting artwork at North End Gallery, pause for some photo ops at Vietnam Veterans Memorial, and learn more about the world around you at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History.

Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Get some cultural insight at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and 9/11 Memorial. Appreciate the collections at New York Public Library and DM Weil Gallery. You'll find plenty of places to visit near New York City: Woodbury Common Premium Outlets (in Central Valley), St Mary's Episcopal Church (in Cold Spring) and Alex Ferrone Gallery (in Cutchogue). There's still lots to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Patrick's Cathedral, go for a walk through Central Park, take in the exciting artwork at Hudson Beach Glass, and get a taste of the local shopping with Fifth Avenue.
