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.
Visit Washington National Cathedral and Gettysburg National Military Park for their historical value. National Air and Space Museum and Gari Melchers Home and Studio at Belmont will appeal to museum buffs. Change things up with these side-trips from Washington DC: Baltimore (Sagamore Spirit Distillery & Mount Vernon Cultural District), Loch Raven Reservoir (in Phoenix) and 12th & 44th New York Infantry Monument (in Gettysburg). There's much more to do: explore the world behind art at National Gallery of Art, take an in-depth tour of United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, learn more about the world around you at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, and take in nature's colorful creations at Hillwood Estate, Museum & Gardens.
