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.
Museum-lovers will appreciate National Air and Space Museum and National Gallery of Art. For shopping fun, head to Madame Tussauds DC or The Spice & Tea Exchange. Get out of town with these interesting Washington DC side-trips: George Washington's Mount Vernon (in Mount Vernon), Antietam National Battlefield (in Sharpsburg) and Gettysburg (Little Round Top & Gettysburg National Military Park). There's lots more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Washington National Cathedral, explore the world behind art at Hillwood Estate, Museum & Gardens, contemplate the long history of Arlington National Cemetery, and learn more about the world around you at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History.
