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 in touch with nature at Antietam National Battlefield and Jug Bay Wetlands Sanctuary. Do some cultural sightseeing at Arlington National Cemetery and National Gallery of Art. Change things up with these side-trips from Washington DC: Soldier's Delight Natural Environment Area (in Owings Mills), Hidden Oaks Nature Center (in Annandale) and Loch Raven Reservoir (in Phoenix). There's much more to do: try your luck at Horseshoe Casino, admire nature's wide array of creatures at National Zoological Park, examine the collection at United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, and contemplate the waterfront views at Tidal Basin.
