Take a break from Washington DC with a short trip to National Museum of the Marine Corps in Triangle, about 48 minutes away. There's lots more to do: get engrossed in the history at National Museum of African American History and Culture, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, and stop by Old Town.
