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.
Explore hidden gems such as Antietam National Battlefield and Eisenhower National Historic Site. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Washington DC: Gettysburg (Gettysburg National Cemetery & Ghost & Vampire Tours), Skyline Drive (in Shenandoah National Park) and Harpers Ferry National Historical Park (in Harpers Ferry). There's much more to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of Tomb of the Unknowns, learn about all things military at U.S. Naval Academy, take in the history at Fort McHenry National Monument, and wander the streets of Fell's Point.
