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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Walking tours and Tidal Basin. Change things up with these side-trips from Washington DC: Gettysburg (Gettysburg National Cemetery, Victorian Photography Studio, &more), The Adventure Park at Sandy Spring (in Sandy Spring) and Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine (in Baltimore). And it doesn't end there: identify plant and animal life at U.S. National Arboretum, take an in-depth tour of National Portrait Gallery, make a trip to John F. Kennedy Grave Site, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception.
