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.
Visiting Antietam National Battlefield and Old Rag Mountain Hike will get you outdoors. Visit Ferry Park and Matapeake Clubhouse and Beach for some beach relaxation. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Washington DC: Ballenger Creek Linear Trail (in Frederick), Gallery On Madison (in Middleburg) and Maryland Federation of Art (in Annapolis). The adventure continues: get a new perspective on nature at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, examine the collection at The National Archives Museum, appreciate the extensive heritage of The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, and take an in-depth tour of United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.
