Washington DC ©
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.
Get some historical perspective at Old Town and Antietam National Battlefield. Get some cultural insight at Capitol Hill and U.S. Naval Academy. Venture out of the city with trips to Fort McHenry National Monument (in Baltimore), Great Falls Park (in McLean) and Annapolis Historic District (in Annapolis). There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at National Air and Space Museum, get to know the fascinating history of Tomb of the Unknowns, admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Art, and learn more about the world around you at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History.
