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.
Antietam National Battlefield and National Gallery of Art are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Gettysburg National Military Park and Riversdale House Museum. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Washington DC: Shenandoah Valley Artworks (in Strasburg), Old Rag Mountain Hike (in Shenandoah National Park) and Baltimore (Sagamore Spirit Distillery, Horseshoe Casino, & more). And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at National Air and Space Museum, get engrossed in the history at Newseum, contemplate the waterfront views at Tidal Basin, and get to know the fascinating history of The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
