Washington DC

— 7 nights
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.
Do your shopping at Madame Tussauds DC and A&A Village Treasures. You'll explore and learn at National Air and Space Museum and The National Archives Museum. Change things up with these side-trips from Washington DC: Baltimore (Sagamore Spirit Distillery & Horseshoe Casino), Antietam National Battlefield (in Sharpsburg) and The Point (in Harpers Ferry). There's still lots to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Washington National Cathedral, look for all kinds of wild species at Audubon Naturalist Society Woodend Sanctuary, learn more about the world around you at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, and explore the world behind art at National Portrait Gallery.
