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.
Visiting Adkins Arboretum and Tidal Basin will get you outdoors. Visit Washington National Cathedral and Georgetown University for their historical value. Step out of Washington DC to go to Chesapeake Beach and see Breezy Point Beach and Campground, which is approximately 1h 05 min away. The adventure continues: see the interesting displays at National Air and Space Museum, pause for some photo ops at Lincoln Memorial, admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Art, and tour the pleasant surroundings at National Zoological Park.
