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.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Chancellorsville Battlefield Visitor Center and National Museum of the Marine Corps. Get some cultural insight at James Madison's Montpelier and Smithsonian American Art Museum. Get out of town with these interesting Washington DC side-trips: Old Rag Mountain Hike (in Shenandoah National Park) and Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge (in Cambridge). There's still lots to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of Capitol Hill, see the interesting displays at National Air and Space Museum, admire the masterpieces at National Portrait Gallery, and wander the streets of Old Town.
