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.
Explore hidden gems such as Skyline Drive and Tomb of the Unknowns. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Washington DC: Baltimore (Fort McHenry National Monument & Horseshoe Casino), U.S. Naval Academy (in Annapolis) and Great Falls Park (in McLean). On the 22nd (Fri), spend a day delving into the history of Antietam National Battlefield. There's much more to do: see the interesting displays at National Air and Space Museum, learn more about the world around you at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, pause for some photo ops at Vietnam Veterans Memorial, and admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Art.
