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 Air and Space Museum and National Gallery of Art. Your inner history buff will appreciate Washington National Cathedral and Gettysburg National Military Park. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Washington DC: Association of Licensed Battlefield Guides (in Gettysburg) and George Washington's Mount Vernon (in Mount Vernon). There's much more to do: stroll the grounds of Arlington National Cemetery, take in the spiritual surroundings of Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, get a new perspective on nature at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, and appreciate the extensive heritage of The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
