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.
Escape the urban bustle at Adkins Arboretum and National Zoological Park. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Antietam National Battlefield and National Air and Space Museum. Step out of Washington DC to go to Shenandoah National Park and see Skyline Drive, which is approximately 2 hours away. There's much more to do: browse the eclectic array of goods at Eastern Market, appreciate the history behind Lincoln Memorial, and contemplate the waterfront views at Tidal Basin.
