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.
Take a break from the city and head to Audubon Naturalist Society Woodend Sanctuary and Betterton Beach. Museum-lovers will get to explore National Air and Space Museum and United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. Explore Washington DC's surroundings by going to Stony Man Mountain Overlook (in Luray), Antietam National Battlefield (in Sharpsburg) and Old Rag Mountain Hike (in Shenandoah National Park). There's lots more to do: admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Art, learn more about the world around you at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, pause for some photo ops at Vietnam Veterans Memorial, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Washington National Cathedral.

Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Step out of the city life by going to Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge and Speed Boats Tours. You'll explore and learn at 9/11 Memorial and New York Public Library. You'll find plenty of places to visit near New York City: Point Lookout Beach (in Point Lookout), Joel L. Lefkowitz Park at West Meadow Beach (in Stony Brook) and Lido Beach (in Lido Beach). There's lots more to do: explore the world behind art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, kick back and relax at Ocean Grove Beach, explore the wealth of natural beauty at Hamilton Grange National Memorial, and pause for some serene contemplation at St. Patrick's Cathedral.
