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 out of town with these interesting Washington DC side-trips: Frederick (C. Burr Artz Public Library, Dragon Distillery, LLC, & more), Gettysburg (Gettysburg National Military Park, Gettysburg National Military Park Museum & Visitor Center, & more) and Horseshoe Casino (in Baltimore). And it doesn't end there: take an in-depth tour of United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, examine the collection at Newseum, admire nature's wide array of creatures at National Zoological Park, and ponder the world of politics at White House.
