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.
Get in touch with nature at Adkins Arboretum and Eastern Neck National Wildlife Refuge. Popular historic sites such as Gettysburg National Military Park and Washington National Cathedral are in your itinerary. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Washington DC: Gettysburg (Gettysburg Museum & Visitor Center, Eisenhower National Historic Site, & more), Sharpsburg (Antietam National Battlefield & Antietam Creek) and Shenandoah National Park (Old Rag Mountain Hike, Skyline Drive, & more). Spend the 28th (Mon) exploring nature at Great Falls Park. Pack the 3rd (Sun) with family-friendly diversions at The Adventure Park at Sandy Spring. There's still lots to do: contemplate the waterfront views at Tidal Basin, learn more about the world around you at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, stroll the grounds of Arlington National Cemetery, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Tomb of the Unknowns.
