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.
Visit Antietam National Battlefield and Gettysburg National Cemetery for their historical value. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like National Air and Space Museum and Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History. Get out of town with these interesting Washington DC side-trips: Jennie Wade House (in Gettysburg) and U.S. Naval Academy (in Annapolis). There's still lots to do: get to know the fascinating history of Tomb of the Unknowns, get engrossed in the history at National Portrait Gallery, explore the world behind art at National Gallery of Art, and see the interesting displays at United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.
