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.
Get some cultural insight at National Air and Space Museum and Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History. Let the collections at National Gallery of Art and National Museum of the Marine Corps capture your imagination. Get out of town with these interesting Washington DC side-trips: Underground Railroad Experience Trail Hikes (in Sandy Spring), Fort McHenry National Monument (in Baltimore) and Great Falls Park (in McLean). And it doesn't end there: explore the activities along Tidal Basin, stroll through National Zoological Park, see the interesting displays at United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, and grab your bike and head to Mount Vernon Trail.
