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.
Get outdoors at Stony Man Mountain Hike and Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge. Get some historical perspective at Chancellorsville Battlefield Visitor Center and James Madison's Montpelier. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Washington DC: Manassas National Battlefield Park (in Manassas), Fell's Point (in Baltimore) and Museum of the Shenandoah Valley (in Winchester). The adventure continues: brush up on your military savvy at National Museum of the Marine Corps, steep yourself in history at Old Town, explore the world behind art at National Portrait Gallery, and make a trip to John F. Kennedy Grave Site.
