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.
Take a break from the city and head to Tidal Basin and Devils Den. Get some historical perspective at Gettysburg National Military Park and Old Town. Venture out of the city with trips to St. Michaels (1879 Hooper Strait Lighthouse, Lyon Rum Distillery & Tasting Room, &more), Choptank River Lighthouse (in Cambridge) and Spas & Wellness (in Easton). There's still lots to do: brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Sagamore Spirit Distillery, see the interesting displays at National Air and Space Museum, witness the site of a historic battle at Gettysburg National Military Park Museum & Visitor Center, and appreciate the extensive heritage of The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
