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 some historical perspective at Old Town and Historic Port Tobacco Village. You'll explore and learn at R.H. Ballard Shop & Gallery and Torpedo Factory Art Center. Explore Washington DC's surroundings by going to Baltimore (Sagamore Spirit Distillery, Horseshoe Casino, & more), George Washington's Mount Vernon (in Mount Vernon) and Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center (in Chantilly). There's much more to do: explore the world behind art at National Portrait Gallery, steep yourself in history at Belmont-Paul Women's Equality National Monument House and Museum, get a taste of the local shopping with Moving Meadows Farm, and wander the streets of Georgetown.
