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.
Appreciate the collections at National Air and Space Museum and Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History. Your inner history buff will appreciate Arlington National Cemetery and Washington National Cathedral. There's lots more to do: get to know the fascinating history of Tomb of the Unknowns, see the interesting displays at The National Archives Museum, get engrossed in the history at United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, and contemplate the long history of Georgetown University.
