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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at National Air and Space Museum and Antietam National Battlefield. Kids will appreciate attractions like Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History and Jug Bay Wetlands Sanctuary. Get out of town with these interesting Washington DC side-trips: Robin Hill Farm and Vineyards (in Brandywine), Copper Fox Distillery (in Sperryville) and Skyline Drive (in Shenandoah National Park). Spend the 21st (Sun) exploring nature at Harpers Ferry National Historical Park. There's still lots to do: take a stroll through Old Town, get a taste of the local shopping with Torpedo Factory Art Center, get engrossed in the history at United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, and explore the world behind art at National Portrait Gallery.
