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: Virginia Beer Museum (in Front Royal), Old Salem Church (in Fredericksburg) and North Anna Battlefield Park (in Ashland). The adventure continues: see the interesting displays at National Air and Space Museum, admire the landmark architecture of George Washington's Mount Vernon, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at National Zoological Park, and get a sense of history and politics at White House.
