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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Renwick Gallery and Smithsonian Institution Freer Gallery of Art and Arthur M. Sackler Gallery. Get a sense of the local culture at Museum of the Bible and Gari Melchers Home and Studio at Belmont. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Washington DC: Flag Ponds Nature Park (in Lusby), Baltimore (Sagamore Spirit Distillery, Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Museum, &more) and Solomons (Annmarie Garden & Calvert Marine Museum and Drum Point Lighthouse). There's still lots to do: take an in-depth tour of Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad National Historical Park, take in the exciting artwork at National Gallery of Art - Sculpture Garden, admire the natural beauty at U.S. National Arboretum, and admire the masterpieces at Gibson's Photographic Gallery.
