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.
Start off your visit on the 12th (Thu): ponder the world of politics at United States Capitol, then admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Art, then examine the collection at National Air and Space Museum, and finally pause for some photo ops at Jefferson Memorial. Here are some ideas for day two: get engrossed in the history at United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, pause for some photo ops at Lincoln Memorial, pause for some photo ops at Vietnam Veterans Memorial, then get a new perspective on nature at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, and finally ponder the world of politics at White House.
