Step out of Washington DC to go to Baltimore and see Horseshoe Casino, which is approximately 1 hour away. Next up on the itinerary: steep yourself in history at Arlington National Cemetery, explore the world behind art at National Gallery of Art, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Tomb of the Unknowns.
