Popular historic sites such as Gettysburg National Military Park and Georgetown University are in your itinerary. Explore Washington DC's surroundings by going to Loch Raven Reservoir (in Phoenix), Antietam National Battlefield (in Sharpsburg) and Gettysburg National Cemetery (in Gettysburg). There's much more to do: admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Art, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St Patrick's Catholic Church, trek along Old Rag Mountain Hike, and admire the striking features of Washington National Cathedral.
