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.
National Air and Space Museum and Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History will appeal to museum buffs. Get some historical perspective at Gettysburg National Military Park and Washington National Cathedral. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Washington DC: The Adventure Park at Sandy Spring (in Sandy Spring), National Museum of the Marine Corps (in Triangle) and Gettysburg (Little Round Top, Gettysburg National Cemetery, & more). There's still lots to do: explore the world behind art at National Gallery of Art, explore the different monuments and memorials at Arlington National Cemetery, get engrossed in the history at Newseum, and appreciate the history behind Vietnam Veterans Memorial.
