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.
Popular historic sites such as Capitol Hill and Washington National Cathedral are in your itinerary. National Air and Space Museum and Georgetown University are good opportunities to explore the local culture. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Washington DC: Horseshoe Casino (in Baltimore) and Robinson Nature Center (in Columbia). The adventure continues: contemplate the waterfront views at Tidal Basin, appreciate the history behind Lincoln Memorial, look for all kinds of wild species at Scott's Run Nature Preserve, and browse the eclectic array of goods at Eastern Market.
