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.
Do your shopping at Fell's Point and Politics and Prose. Get outdoors at Tidal Basin and Harpers Ferry National Historical Park. Venture out of the city with trips to Shenandoah National Park (Old Rag Mountain Hike & Skyline Drive), Antietam National Battlefield (in Sharpsburg) and Gettysburg (Gettysburg National Military Park, The Lion Potter of Gettysburg, & more). And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at National Air and Space Museum, take an in-depth tour of United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, take in the spiritual surroundings of Washington National Cathedral, and explore the world behind art at National Gallery of Art.
