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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Gettysburg National Military Park and Skyline Drive. Change things up with these side-trips from Washington DC: Gettysburg Museum & Visitor Center (in Gettysburg) and Oriole Park at Camden Yards (in Baltimore). The adventure continues: learn more about the world around you at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, stroll the grounds of Arlington National Cemetery, admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Art, and pause for some photo ops at Washington Monument.

Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Ponquogue Beach and Walkway Over the Hudson State Historic Park. You'll find plenty of places to visit near New York City: Cupsogue Beach County Park (in Westhampton Beach), Orange County Arboretum (in Montgomery) and The Amazing Olive (in Port Jefferson). There's much more to do: admire the sheer force of Bushkill Falls, identify plant and animal life at Sam's Point Preserve, pause for some serene contemplation at St. Patrick's Cathedral, and savor the flavors at Food & Drink.

To find other places to visit, ratings, where to stay, and more tourist information, go to the New York City day trip planning app .
