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.
Antietam National Battlefield and Fell's Point will appeal to history buffs. Get a sense of the local culture at Harpers Ferry National Historical Park and Tomb of the Unknowns. Change things up with these side-trips from Washington DC: Skyline Drive (in Shenandoah National Park), Wine Loves Chocolate (in Washington) and Roddy Road Covered Bridge (in Thurmont). The adventure continues: examine the collection at National Air and Space Museum, get a new perspective on nature at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, explore the world behind art at National Gallery of Art, and stroll the grounds of Gettysburg National Cemetery.
