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.
Appreciate the collections at National Air and Space Museum and Hillwood Estate, Museum & Gardens. Step off the beaten path and head to The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. Get out of town with these interesting Washington DC side-trips: Gettysburg (Gettysburg Heritage Center, Shriver House Museum, &more), Old Town (in Fredericksburg) and National Museum of the Marine Corps (in Triangle). There's still lots to do: explore the world behind art at National Gallery of Art, examine the collection at Museum of the Bible, take an in-depth tour of National Portrait Gallery, and get a new perspective on nature at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History.
