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.
Bring the kids along to National Air and Space Museum and Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History. There's still lots to do: explore the world behind art at National Gallery of Art, see the interesting displays at The National Archives Museum, pause for some photo ops at Lincoln Memorial, and take an in-depth tour of United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.
