Washington DC ©
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.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Shriver House Museum and Antietam National Battlefield. Appreciate the collections at Gettysburg Museum of History and The Walters Art Museum. Venture out of the city with trips to Gettysburg (Gettysburg National Cemetery & Dobbin House Tavern), Harpers Ferry National Historical Park (in Harpers Ferry) and Fort McHenry National Monument (in Baltimore). There's still lots to do: get engrossed in the history at National Museum of African American History and Culture, appreciate the history behind Lincoln Memorial, appreciate the extensive heritage of The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, and take a stroll through Capitol Hill.
