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.
Appreciate the collections at National Air and Space Museum and United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. Get some cultural insight at Antietam National Battlefield and Arlington National Cemetery. Venture out of the city with trips to Centennial Park (in Ellicott City), Baltimore (Fell's Point, Horseshoe Casino, & more) and Annapolis Historic District (in Annapolis). And it doesn't end there: explore the world behind art at National Gallery of Art, view the masterpieces at Madame Tussauds DC, examine the collection at The National Archives Museum, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Capitol Hill.
