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.

The adventure continues: see the interesting displays at National Air and Space Museum, get a sense of history and politics at Library of Congress, learn more about the world around you at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, and appreciate the history behind Lincoln Memorial.
