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.
National Air and Space Museum and Madame Tussauds DC will appeal to museum buffs. Kids will appreciate attractions like Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History and National Zoological Park. Change things up with these side-trips from Washington DC: Shenandoah Valley Artworks (in Strasburg), Gallery On Madison (in Middleburg) and National Museum of the Marine Corps (in Triangle). There's much more to do: admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Art, examine the collection at Newseum, take in the exciting artwork at Loring Cornish Gallery, and browse the fresh offerings at Brown's Orchards and Farm Market.
