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.
Your list of things to see and do now includes Fort McHenry National Monument, Korean War Veterans Memorial, Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center, and other attractions. Get a sense of the local culture at National Air and Space Museum and United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History and National Zoological Park. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Washington DC: National Museum of the Marine Corps (in Triangle), Fell's Point (in Baltimore) and Hague (The Hague Winery & General's Ridge Vineyard and Winery). And it doesn't end there: admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Art, get a sense of history and politics at White House, get lost in a book at Library of Congress, and admire all the interesting features of National Mall.
