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.
Kids will enjoy National Air and Space Museum and Annapolis Historic District. Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History and Gettysburg National Military Park are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Change things up with these side-trips from Washington DC: Eisenhower National Historic Site (in Gettysburg), Copper Fox Distillery (in Sperryville) and James Madison's Montpelier (in Montpelier Station). The adventure continues: get engrossed in the history at United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, appreciate the history behind Lincoln Memorial, stroll the grounds of Arlington National Cemetery, and take a stroll through Old Town.
