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.
Get some cultural insight at United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and National Air and Space Museum. Take a break from the city and head to Skyline Drive and Kenilworth Park and Aquatic Gardens. Get out of town with these interesting Washington DC side-trips: Copper Fox Distillery (in Sperryville), Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum (in St. Michaels) and Betterton Beach (in Betterton). There's much more to do: explore the world behind art at National Gallery of Art, sample the fine beverages at Sagamore Spirit Distillery, learn more about the world around you at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, and pause for some photo ops at Lincoln Memorial.
