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.
Washington National Cathedral and Arlington National Cemetery will appeal to history buffs. You'll explore and learn at National Gallery of Art and National Air and Space Museum. Explore Washington DC's surroundings by going to Hidden Oaks Nature Center (in Annandale), George Washington's Mount Vernon (in Mount Vernon) and Jug Bay Wetlands Sanctuary (in Lothian). There's lots more to do: get a new perspective on nature at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, contemplate the long history of Georgetown University, appreciate the extensive heritage of Tomb of the Unknowns, and get engrossed in the history at United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.

Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Start off your visit on the 8th (Mon): make a trip to The Metropolitan Museum of Art, then get to know the fascinating history of Tiles For America, and then don't miss a visit to 9/11 Memorial. Keep things going the next day: shop like a local with Fifth Avenue, then stop by Kee's Chocolates, and then shop like a local with Shopping Girlfriend NYC.
