Washington DC

Washington DC ©
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.
Take a break from the city and head to Antietam National Battlefield and Skyline Drive. For shopping fun, head to Madame Tussauds DC or Shenandoah Valley Artworks. Explore Washington DC's surroundings by going to Betterton Beach (in Betterton), Ferry Park (in Rock Hall) and Copper Fox Distillery (in Sperryville). There's still lots to do: get engrossed in the history at United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, try your luck at Horseshoe Casino, take in the spiritual surroundings of Washington National Cathedral, and trek along Old Rag Mountain Hike.
