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 The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and Hillwood Estate, Museum & Gardens for their historical value. Attractions like National Air and Space Museum and The Adventure Park at Sandy Spring make great kid-friendly stops. Change things up with these side-trips from Washington DC: Fort McHenry National Monument (in Baltimore), Manassas National Battlefield Park (in Manassas) and National Museum of the Marine Corps (in Triangle). There's lots more to do: take a stroll through Old Town, get engrossed in the history at National Museum of African American History and Culture, admire the masterpieces at National Portrait Gallery, and contemplate the long history of Chatham Manor.
