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.
Get out of town with these interesting Washington DC side-trips: Gettysburg National Military Park (in Gettysburg), The Adventure Park at Sandy Spring (in Sandy Spring) and Old Rag Mountain Hike (in Shenandoah National Park). There's much more to do: see the interesting displays at National Air and Space Museum, ponder the world of politics at United States Capitol, pause for some photo ops at Lincoln Memorial, and take an in-depth tour of United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.
