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.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Fell's Point and Takoma Park Farmers Market. Take a break from the city and head to Audubon Naturalist Society Woodend Sanctuary and Breezy Point Beach. Get out of town with these interesting Washington DC side-trips: Worthington Manor Golf Club (in Urbana), Shenandoah National Park (Skyline Drive, Appalachian Trail, & more) and Burke Lake Park (in Fairfax Station). On the 21st (Tue), spend a day delving into the history of Antietam National Battlefield. Spend the 15th (Sat) exploring nature at Cedar Creek & Belle Grove National Historical Park Visitors Contact Station. There's lots more to do: try to win big at Horseshoe Casino, explore the striking landscape of Harpers Ferry National Historical Park, take in the history at Gettysburg National Military Park, and explore the striking landscape at Devils Den.
