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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Little Round Top and Chancellorsville Battlefield Visitor Center. Step off the beaten path and head to Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge and Chatham Manor. Change things up with these side-trips from Washington DC: Museum of the Shenandoah Valley (in Winchester), Fredericksburg (Hugh Mercer Apothecary Shop, Chatham Manor, & more) and Gettysburg (Evergreen Cemetery & Seminary Ridge Museum, Gettysburg). The adventure continues: enjoy the sea views from Calvert Marine Museum and Drum Point Lighthouse, take in the exciting artwork at National Gallery of Art - Sculpture Garden, pause for some photo ops at Vietnam Women's Memorial, and examine the collection at Museum of the Bible.
