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.
Washington National Cathedral and Arlington National Cemetery will appeal to history buffs. For shopping fun, head to Eastern Market or Gallery On Madison. Go for a jaunt from Washington DC to Fairfax to see Fair Oaks Mall about 38 minutes away. There's lots more to do: see the interesting displays at National Air and Space Museum, take an in-depth tour of United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, appreciate the history behind Vietnam Veterans Memorial, and browse the fresh offerings at Downtown Silver Spring.
