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.
Bring the kids along to National Air and Space Museum and The Adventure Park at Sandy Spring. Venture out of the city with trips to Clue IQ: An Escape Room Experience (in Frederick), Gettysburg (Gettysburg National Military Park, Gettysburg National Cemetery, & more) and Billy Goat Trail (in Potomac). There's still lots to do: learn more about the world around you at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, appreciate the history behind Lincoln Memorial, ponder the world of politics at White House, and contemplate the waterfront views at Tidal Basin.
