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.
Get some historical perspective at Gettysburg National Military Park and Washington National Cathedral. Shop till you drop at Takoma Park Farmers Market and Strasburg Emporium Antiques. Venture out of the city with trips to The Preppy Redneck (in St. Michaels), Adkins Arboretum (in Ridgely) and Gettysburg (Gettysburg Museum & Visitor Center, The Lion Potter of Gettysburg, & more). Spend the 21st (Fri) exploring nature at Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts. The adventure continues: see the interesting displays at National Air and Space Museum, get to know the fascinating history of Tomb of the Unknowns, get a new perspective on nature at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, and hunt for treasures at Eastern Market.
