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.
Bring the kids along to National Zoological Park and Tidal Basin. Get some historical perspective at Gettysburg National Military Park and Washington National Cathedral. Explore Washington DC's surroundings by going to Antietam National Battlefield (in Sharpsburg), Stony Man Mountain Hike (in Luray) and Old Rag Mountain Hike (in Shenandoah National Park). There's lots more to do: examine the collection at National Air and Space Museum, explore the world behind art at National Gallery of Art, steep yourself in history at Arlington National Cemetery, and appreciate the history behind Vietnam Veterans Memorial.
