Washington DC

— 10 nights
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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Washington National Cathedral and National Museum of the Marine Corps. The Walters Art Museum and National Postal Museum will appeal to museum buffs. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Washington DC: Fredericksburg (Hugh Mercer Apothecary Shop & Old Town), Gettysburg (Dobbin House Tavern, Gettysburg National Cemetery, &more) and Baltimore (The Baltimore Basilica & American Visionary Art Museum). There's still lots to do: examine the collection at Museum of the Bible, get a taste of the local shopping with Torpedo Factory Art Center, learn about all things military at National Museum of the United States Navy, and steep yourself in history at Arlington House - The Robert E. Lee Memorial.
