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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Antietam National Battlefield and Fort McHenry National Monument. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Harpers Ferry National Historical Park and U.S. Naval Academy. Venture out of the city with trips to St. Michaels (Ouvert Gallery & Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum), National Museum of the Marine Corps (in Triangle) and Calvert Marine Museum and Drum Point Lighthouse (in Solomons). There's much more to do: examine the collection at National Air and Space Museum, appreciate the history behind Vietnam Veterans Memorial, take an in-depth tour of United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, and explore the world behind art at National Gallery of Art.
