Bethesda — 11 nights

Bethesda is a census-designated place in southern Montgomery County, Maryland, United States, located just northwest of the U.S. capital of Washington, D.C. It takes its name from a local church, the Bethesda Meeting House (1820, rebuilt 1849), which in turn took its name from Jerusalem's Pool of Bethesda. Venture out of the city with trips to Manassas National Battlefield Park (in Manassas), Silver Eagle Group (in Ashburn) and Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center (in Chantilly). Spend the 16th (Sun) exploring nature at Harpers Ferry National Historical Park. Spend the 19th (Wed) exploring nature at Great Falls Park. There's much more to do: grab your bike and head to Capitol Crescent, witness the site of a historic battle at Antietam National Battlefield, tee off at Worthington Manor Golf Club, and explore the striking landscape of Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts.
