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.
Start off your visit on the 4th (Thu): ponder the world of politics at United States Capitol, then learn more about the world around you at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, and then get a sense of history and politics at White House. Here are some ideas for day two: admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Art, then ponder the world of politics at Library of Congress, then see the interesting displays at National Air and Space Museum, and finally appreciate the history behind Lincoln Memorial.
