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.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Antietam National Battlefield and United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. Get some historical perspective at Gettysburg National Military Park and Saint Alphonsus Church. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Washington DC: Betterton Beach (in Betterton), Copper Fox Distillery (in Sperryville) and Skyline Drive (in Shenandoah National Park). And it doesn't end there: admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Art, contemplate the waterfront views at Tidal Basin, appreciate the history behind Vietnam Veterans Memorial, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Washington National Cathedral.
