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.
Explore Washington DC's surroundings by going to Gettysburg (Gettysburg National Cemetery, Victorian Photography Studio, &more), Baltimore (Sagamore Spirit Distillery, Horseshoe Casino, &more) and Clue IQ: An Escape Room Experience (in Frederick). There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at National Air and Space Museum, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at National Zoological Park, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Washington National Cathedral, and ponder the world of politics at United States Capitol.

For where to stay, other places to visit, and other tourist information, refer to the Washington DC online driving holiday planner.
