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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Washington DC: Horseshoe Casino (in Baltimore) and Gettysburg National Military Park (in Gettysburg). The adventure continues: examine the collection at National Air and Space Museum, ponder the world of politics at White House, get engrossed in the history at United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, and pause for some photo ops at Vietnam Veterans Memorial.
