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.
Get some cultural insight at The Walters Art Museum and Hillwood Estate, Museum & Gardens. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Smithsonian American Art Museum and Old Town. Change things up with these side-trips from Washington DC: Harpers Ferry National Historical Park (in Harpers Ferry) and Fort McHenry National Monument (in Baltimore). And it doesn't end there: get engrossed in the history at National Museum of African American History and Culture, explore the world behind art at National Portrait Gallery, see the interesting displays at National Air and Space Museum, and pause for some serene contemplation at Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception.
