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.
Antietam National Battlefield and Jennie Wade House will appeal to history buffs. Explore hidden gems such as Skyline Drive and Gettysburg National Cemetery. Venture out of the city with trips to Fort McHenry National Monument (in Baltimore), Gettysburg (Gettysburg National Military Park & Eisenhower National Historic Site) and Harpers Ferry National Historical Park (in Harpers Ferry). There's still lots to do: examine the collection at National Air and Space Museum, pause for some photo ops at Vietnam Veterans Memorial, learn more about the world around you at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, and admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Art.
