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 Washington DC's surroundings by going to Gettysburg (Gettysburg National Military Park Museum & Visitor Center, Victorian Photography Studio, & more), Roddy Road Covered Bridge (in Thurmont) and Horseshoe Casino (in Baltimore). There's lots more to do: examine the collection 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 get a sense of history and politics at Library of Congress.
