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.
Family-friendly places like National Air and Space Museum and Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History will thrill your kids.

There's lots more to do: explore the world behind art at National Gallery of Art, admire nature's wide array of creatures at National Zoological Park, get a sense of history and politics at Library of Congress, and pause for some photo ops at Vietnam Veterans Memorial.
