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.
Get some cultural insight at National Air and Space Museum and Antietam National Battlefield. Get in touch with nature at Tidal Basin and Old Rag Mountain Hike. Get out of town with these interesting Washington DC side-trips: The Rising Sun Tavern (in Fredericksburg), The Point (in Harpers Ferry) and Gettysburg National Military Park (in Gettysburg). The adventure continues: admire the striking features of Washington National Cathedral, appreciate the extensive heritage of The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, learn more about the world around you at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, and explore the world behind art at National Gallery of Art.
