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 Adkins Arboretum. Museum-lovers will get to explore National Gallery of Art and United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Washington DC: Skyline Drive (in Shenandoah National Park), Harpers Ferry National Historical Park (in Harpers Ferry) and Copper Fox Distillery (in Sperryville). On the 2nd (Sun), spend a day delving into the history of Antietam National Battlefield. Next up on the itinerary: identify plant and animal life at Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge, wander the streets of Capitol Hill, contemplate the long history of Old Town, and stroll the grounds of Gettysburg National Cemetery.
