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.
Museum-lovers will get to explore National Museum of the Marine Corps and National Air and Space Museum. Your inner history buff will appreciate Chancellorsville Battlefield Visitor Center and James Madison's Montpelier. Venture out of the city with trips to Old Rag Mountain Hike (in Shenandoah National Park), Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge (in Cambridge) and Fredericksburg (The Rising Sun Tavern & Chatham Manor). And it doesn't end there: explore the world behind art at Hillwood Estate, Museum & Gardens, appreciate the extensive heritage of The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, and take an in-depth tour of National Museum of African American History and Culture.
