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.
Explore Washington DC's surroundings by going to Baltimore (The Walters Art Museum, Horseshoe Casino, & more), Gettysburg (Gettysburg National Military Park, Victorian Photography Studio, & more) and Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center (in Chantilly). Spend the 22nd (Mon) exploring nature at Mary McLeod Bethune Council House. There's still lots to do: examine the collection at National Air and Space Museum, admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Art, ponder the world of politics at United States Capitol, and appreciate the history behind Lincoln Memorial.
