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 cultural insight at National Air and Space Museum and Gettysburg National Military Park. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Arlington National Cemetery and Washington National Cathedral. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Washington DC: Harpers Ferry (Ruins of St. John's Episcopal Church, Harpers Ferry National Historical Park, & more), Cold War Museum (in Vint Hill Farms) and Gettysburg (Big Round Top, Little Round Top, & more). There's much more to do: explore the world behind art at National Gallery of Art, get a new perspective on nature at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, appreciate the extensive heritage of The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, and get engrossed in the history at Newseum.
