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.
National Air and Space Museum and Antietam National Battlefield are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to National Museum of African American History and Culture and James Madison's Montpelier. Explore Washington DC's surroundings by going to Finders Keepers (in Orange), U.S. Naval Academy (in Annapolis) and Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge (in Cambridge). There's still lots to do: brush up on your military savvy at National Museum of the Marine Corps, admire the masterpieces at The Walters Art Museum, take an in-depth tour of National Portrait Gallery, and steep yourself in history at Old Town.
