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 day by day itinerary now includes Beverly Triton Beach Park, Busch Gardens Williamsburg and DMV Jetskis. You'll explore and learn at National Air and Space Museum and National Portrait Gallery. Arlington National Cemetery and Old Stone House will appeal to history buffs. Change things up with these side-trips from Washington DC: Capital SUP (in Annapolis) and Breezy Point Beach (in Chesapeake Beach). And it doesn't end there: get a new perspective on nature at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, meet the residents at National Zoological Park, cool off at Georgetown Waterfront Park, and appreciate the history behind Lincoln Memorial.
