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.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Arlington National Cemetery and Tomb of the Unknowns. Museum-lovers will get to explore National Air and Space Museum and National Gallery of Art. When in Washington DC, make a side trip to see Hidden Oaks Nature Center in Annandale, approximately 38 minutes away. Spend the 20th (Mon) exploring nature at Mary McLeod Bethune Council House. There's still lots to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Washington National Cathedral, pause for some photo ops at Jefferson Memorial, gain insight at Georgetown University, and see the interesting displays at The National Archives Museum.
