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.
You've added Washington Monument, Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Newseum, and other attractions to your itinerary. Kids will enjoy National Air and Space Museum and Tidal Basin. There's much more to do: get a new perspective on nature at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, explore the activities along Capitol Reflecting Pool, ponder the world of politics at Library of Congress, and pause for some photo ops at Jefferson Memorial.
