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.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Antietam National Battlefield and Harpers Ferry National Historical Park. National Air and Space Museum and Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History will appeal to museum buffs. Explore Washington DC's surroundings by going to Skyline Drive (in Shenandoah National Park) and Trinity Episcopal Church (in Upperville). There's still lots to do: explore the world behind art at National Gallery of Art.
