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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Skyline Drive and Antietam National Battlefield. Explore Washington DC's surroundings by going to U.S. Naval Academy (in Annapolis), Gettysburg (Gettysburg National Military Park & Gettysburg National Cemetery) and Harpers Ferry National Historical Park (in Harpers Ferry). The adventure continues: examine the collection at National Air and Space Museum, get a sense of history and politics at United States Capitol, pause for some photo ops at Vietnam Veterans Memorial, and get lost in a book at Library of Congress.
