Washington DC
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.
Discover out-of-the-way places like The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and Smithsonian Institution Building. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Capitol Hill and Hillwood Estate, Museum & Gardens. Explore Washington DC's surroundings by going to National Museum of the Marine Corps (in Triangle), Ruins of St. John's Episcopal Church (in Harpers Ferry) and Antietam National Battlefield (in Sharpsburg). There's much more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, witness the site of a historic battle at Manassas National Battlefield Park, take a stroll through Old Town, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Fell's Point.
