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.
Popular historic sites such as Gari Melchers Home and Studio at Belmont and The Rising Sun Tavern are in your itinerary. Visiting Antietam National Battlefield and Skyline Drive will get you outdoors. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Washington DC: Harpers Ferry National Historical Park (in Harpers Ferry), The Hague Winery (in Hague) and U.S. Naval Academy (in Annapolis). There's much more to do: see the interesting displays at St. Clement's Island Museum, take a stroll through Old Town, learn about all things military at National Museum of the Marine Corps, and take an in-depth tour of National Museum of African American History and Culture.
