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.
National Air and Space Museum and National Museum of African American History and Culture will appeal to museum buffs. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and Antietam National Battlefield. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Washington DC: Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge (in Cambridge), Catoctin Creek Distillery (in Purcellville) and Harpers Ferry National Historical Park (in Harpers Ferry). Next up on the itinerary: brush up on your military savvy at National Museum of the Marine Corps, learn more about the world around you at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, explore the world behind art at National Portrait Gallery, and enjoy the sand and surf at North Beach.
