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 some cultural insight at National Air and Space Museum and United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. Take a break from the city and head to Tidal Basin and National Zoological Park. Venture out of the city with trips to Shenandoah National Park (Skyline Drive & Old Rag Mountain Hike), Antietam National Battlefield (in Sharpsburg) and Baltimore (Horseshoe Casino & Fell's Point). Spend the 22nd (Thu) exploring nature at Harpers Ferry National Historical Park. The adventure continues: admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Art, step off the mainland to explore Theodore Roosevelt Island Park, look for gifts at White House Gifts, and hunt for treasures at Union Market.
