Washington DC ©
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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and Antietam National Battlefield. Step off the beaten path and head to U.S. Naval Academy and James Madison's Montpelier. Explore Washington DC's surroundings by going to Gettysburg (Little Round Top & Shriver House Museum), Calvert Marine Museum and Drum Point Lighthouse (in Solomons) and National Museum of the Marine Corps (in Triangle). And it doesn't end there: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, explore the world behind art at The Phillips Collection, take an in-depth tour of Smithsonian American Art Museum, and admire the natural beauty at Hillwood Estate, Museum & Gardens.
