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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Washington DC: Horseshoe Casino (in Baltimore) and Gettysburg National Military Park (in Gettysburg). There's still lots to do: examine the collection at National Air and Space Museum, ponder the world of politics at White House, learn more about the world around you at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, and pause for some photo ops at Vietnam Veterans Memorial.
