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 Gallery of Art will appeal to museum buffs. Get a sense of the local culture at R.H. Ballard Shop & Gallery and James Madison Museum. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Washington DC: Desert Rose Ranch & Winery (in Hume), Baltimore (Sagamore Spirit Distillery, Inner Harbor, & more) and Bloomery Plantation Distillery (in Charles Town). The adventure continues: take an in-depth tour of United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, admire the landmark architecture of Gari Melchers Home and Studio at Belmont, do a tasting at The Hague Winery, and explore and take pictures at Audubon Naturalist Society Woodend Sanctuary.
