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.
Let the collections at National Air and Space Museum and United States Holocaust Memorial Museum capture your imagination. Popular historic sites such as Gettysburg National Military Park and Arlington National Cemetery are in your itinerary. Venture out of the city with trips to Fell's Point (in Baltimore), Gettysburg National Cemetery (in Gettysburg) and Antietam National Battlefield (in Sharpsburg). The adventure continues: explore the world behind art at National Gallery of Art, view the masterpieces at Madame Tussauds DC, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Washington National Cathedral, and hunt for treasures at Eastern Market.
