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.
Let the collections at National Air and Space Museum and The National Archives Museum capture your imagination. Do some cultural sightseeing at Antietam National Battlefield and National Gallery of Art. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Washington DC: Betterton Beach (in Betterton), Ferry Park (in Rock Hall) and Historical Society of Kent County (in Chestertown). And it doesn't end there: admire all the interesting features of Gettysburg National Military Park, get to know the fascinating history of Tomb of the Unknowns, don't miss a visit to Devils Den, and explore the different monuments and memorials at Arlington National Cemetery.
