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.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Audubon Naturalist Society Woodend Sanctuary and Tidal Basin. Museum-lovers will get to explore National Air and Space Museum and United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. Change things up with these side-trips from Washington DC: Gettysburg National Military Park (in Gettysburg) and Fell's Point (in Baltimore). The adventure continues: admire nature's wide array of creatures at National Zoological Park, learn more about the world around you at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, pause for some photo ops at Vietnam Veterans Memorial, and explore the world behind art at National Gallery of Art.
