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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Gettysburg National Military Park and Tomb of the Unknowns. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like National Air and Space Museum and United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. Get out of town with these interesting Washington DC side-trips: Gettysburg (Little Round Top & Gettysburg National Cemetery). There's much more to do: explore the world behind art at National Gallery of Art, examine the collection at The National Archives Museum, admire the striking features of Washington National Cathedral, and learn more about the world around you at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History.

For traveler tips, other places to visit, ratings, and other tourist information, use the Washington DC road trip planner.
