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.
Take a break from the city and head to Antietam National Battlefield and Betterton Beach. Get some historical perspective at Gettysburg National Military Park and Tomb of the Unknowns. Explore Washington DC's surroundings by going to Gettysburg (Confederate Trails of Gettysburg, Gettysburg Museum of History, & more), Wat Thai of Washington, D.C. (in Silver Spring) and Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center (in Chantilly). Spend the 12th (Mon) exploring nature at Harpers Ferry National Historical Park. Spend the 20th (Tue) exploring nature at Great Falls Park. There's much more to do: see the interesting displays at National Air and Space Museum, get engrossed in the history at United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, try to win big at Horseshoe Casino, and contemplate the waterfront views at Tidal Basin.
