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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Washington National Cathedral and George Washington's Mount Vernon. Get a sense of the local culture at National Air and Space Museum and Arlington National Cemetery. There's much more to do: admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Art, examine the collection at United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, pause for some photo ops at Lincoln Memorial, and get a new perspective on nature at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History.
