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.

Udvar-Hazy Center (in Chantilly) and Gettysburg (Gettysburg Museum & Visitor Center, Association of Licensed Battlefield Guides, & more). Pack the 7th (Tue) with family-friendly diversions at The Adventure Park at Sandy Spring. Next up on the itinerary: admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Art, pause for some photo ops at National World War II Memorial, take an in-depth tour of United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, and ponder the world of politics at White House.
