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.
Museum-lovers will appreciate National Air and Space Museum and George Washington's Mount Vernon. Your inner history buff will appreciate Washington National Cathedral and Tomb of the Unknowns. Get out of town with these interesting Washington DC side-trips: Horseshoe Casino (in Baltimore), Loch Raven Reservoir (in Phoenix) and Hidden Oaks Nature Center (in Annandale). Spend the 5th (Fri) exploring nature at Mary McLeod Bethune Council House. There's lots more to do: steep yourself in history at Arlington National Cemetery, explore the world behind art at Hillwood Estate, Museum & Gardens, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, and identify plant and animal life at Jug Bay Wetlands Sanctuary.
