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.
Step out of the city life by going to Antietam National Battlefield and Audubon Naturalist Society Woodend Sanctuary. Arlington National Cemetery and The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier will appeal to history buffs. And it doesn't end there: examine the collection at National Air and Space Museum, admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Art, deepen your understanding at Georgetown University, and pause for some photo ops at Vietnam Veterans Memorial.
