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 your shopping at Takoma Park Farmers Market and Eastern Market. Popular historic sites such as Eisenhower National Historic Site and Washington National Cathedral are in your itinerary. Get out of town with these interesting Washington DC side-trips: Breezy Point Beach and Campground (in Chesapeake Beach), Skyline Drive (in Shenandoah National Park) and Gettysburg National Military Park (in Gettysburg). Next up on the itinerary: see the interesting displays at National Air and Space Museum, contemplate the waterfront views at Tidal Basin, appreciate the extensive heritage of Capitol Hill, and pause for some photo ops at Lincoln Memorial.
