Washington DC

— 5 nights
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.

There's much more to do: examine the collection at National Air and Space Museum, get to know the resident critters at National Zoological Park, take an in-depth tour of United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, and appreciate the history behind Jefferson Memorial.
