Washington DC

— 15 nights
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.
Kids will appreciate attractions like National Air and Space Museum and Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History. Get out of town with these interesting Washington DC side-trips: Baltimore (Historic Ships in Baltimore, National Aquarium, &more), Gettysburg (Vermont Monument, Gettysburg National Military Park, &more) and National Shrine of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton (in Emmitsburg). Pack the 23rd (Wed) with family-friendly diversions at The Adventure Park at Sandy Spring. There's still lots to do: take an in-depth tour of United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, pause for some photo ops at Vietnam Veterans Memorial, admire nature's wide array of creatures at National Zoological Park, and admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Art.
