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.
Visiting Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge and Devils Den will get you outdoors. Museum-lovers will appreciate Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum and Hillwood Estate, Museum & Gardens. Venture out of the city with trips to National Museum of the Marine Corps (in Triangle), Old Rag Mountain Hike (in Shenandoah National Park) and Great Falls Park (in McLean). Spend the 14th (Sun) exploring nature at Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts. Next up on the itinerary: examine the collection at Gettysburg Museum of History, pause for some photo ops at Vietnam Veterans Memorial, get a sense of history and politics at Library of Congress, and admire the masterpieces at Smithsonian American Art Museum.

Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Washington DC trip simple and quick.
