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 hidden gems such as Antietam National Battlefield and Skyline Drive. Your inner history buff will appreciate Tomb of the Unknowns and Old Town. Explore Washington DC's surroundings by going to Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum (in St. Michaels) and Copper Fox Distillery (in Sperryville). There's lots more to do: see the interesting displays at National Air and Space Museum, explore the world behind art at National Gallery of Art, and take an in-depth tour of National Portrait Gallery.
