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.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like The Adventure Park at Sandy Spring and Skyline Drive. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Washington DC: Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts (in Vienna), Antietam National Battlefield (in Sharpsburg) and Fort McHenry National Monument (in Baltimore). There's much more to do: get the lay of the land with Walking tours, look for all kinds of wild species at U.S. National Arboretum, appreciate the extensive heritage of The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, and make a trip to John F. Kennedy Grave Site.
