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.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Fell's Point and Olivia Macaron. Get a sense of the local culture at The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and Antietam National Battlefield. Get out of town with these interesting Washington DC side-trips: Old Town (in Fredericksburg), James Madison's Montpelier (in Montpelier Station) and John Brown's Fort (in Harpers Ferry). There's lots more to do: take a stroll through Old Town, pause for some photo ops at Vietnam Veterans Memorial, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, and explore the historical opulence of Smithsonian Institution Building.
