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.
Attractions like National Air and Space Museum and Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History make great kid-friendly stops. National Gallery of Art and Jennie Wade House will appeal to museum buffs. Change things up with these side-trips from Washington DC: Skyline Drive (in Shenandoah National Park), Antietam National Battlefield (in Sharpsburg) and Harpers Ferry National Historical Park (in Harpers Ferry). There's still lots to do: get to know the fascinating history of Tomb of the Unknowns, appreciate the history behind Vietnam Veterans Memorial, get your game on at Victorian Photography Studio, and admire the architecture and history at Fort McHenry National Monument.
