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.
Shop till you drop at Eastern Market and The Christmas Haus. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Gettysburg National Military Park and National Air and Space Museum. Change things up with these side-trips from Washington DC: Gettysburg (Gettysburg National Cemetery, Little Round Top, & more), George Washington's Mount Vernon (in Mount Vernon) and Antietam National Battlefield (in Sharpsburg). And it doesn't end there: take in the spiritual surroundings of Washington National Cathedral, buy something for everyone on your list at Tysons Galleria Shopping Center, get a new perspective on nature at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, and take in the exciting artwork at Madame Tussauds DC.

For photos, where to stay, other places to visit, and other tourist information, use the Washington DC trip maker site .
