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.
Escape the urban bustle at Tidal Basin and Antietam National Battlefield. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Gettysburg National Military Park and Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. Get out of town with these interesting Washington DC side-trips: Devils Den (in Gettysburg) and Horseshoe Casino (in Baltimore). There's much more to do: examine the collection at National Air and Space Museum, take in the spiritual surroundings of Washington National Cathedral, grab your bike and head to Conte's Bike Shop, and step off the mainland to explore Theodore Roosevelt Island Park.
