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.

Popular historic sites such as Washington National Cathedral and George Washington's Mount Vernon are in your itinerary. You'll explore and learn at National Air and Space Museum and Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History. Change things up with these side-trips from Washington DC: National Museum of the Marine Corps (in Triangle) and Gari Melchers Home and Studio at Belmont (in Falmouth).
