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.
Bring the kids along to National Air and Space Museum and National Zoological Park. Step out of Washington DC with an excursion to Hidden Pond Nature Center in Springfield--about 34 minutes away. Next up on the itinerary: get a new perspective on nature at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Art, ponder the world of politics at Library of Congress, and contemplate the waterfront views at Tidal Basin.
