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.
Bring the kids along to Tidal Basin and Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History. When in Washington DC, make a side trip to see Sandy Spring Slave Museum and African Art Gallery in Sandy Spring, approximately Sandy Spring away. The adventure continues: get to know the resident critters at National Zoological Park, see the interesting displays at The National Archives Museum, get a sense of history and politics at United States Capitol, and get engrossed in the history at United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.

Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Bring the kids along to Central Park and Ellis Island. There's much more to do: explore the world behind art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, admire the landmark architecture of Rockefeller Center, appreciate the history behind Statue of Liberty National Monument, and steep yourself in history at 9/11 Memorial.

To find photos, ratings, other places to visit, and other tourist information, read our New York City day trip website.
