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.
Explore hidden gems such as National Museum of African American History and Culture and Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. Popular historic sites such as The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and Chatham Manor are in your itinerary. Change things up with a short trip to Fredericksburg & Spotsylvania National Military Park in Fredericksburg (about 1h 5 min away). There's lots more to do: learn more about the world around you at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, explore the world behind art at Smithsonian American Art Museum, get engrossed in the history at United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Washington National Cathedral.

To find more things to do, traveler tips, ratings, and more tourist information, refer to the Washington DC journey planner.
