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.
Popular historic sites such as Eisenhower National Historic Site and Gettysburg National Military Park are in your itinerary. You'll explore and learn at Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum and United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. Change things up with a short trip to Horseshoe Casino Baltimore in Baltimore (about 1h 05 min away). There's much more to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of Capitol Hill, admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Art, stroll the grounds of Arlington National Cemetery, and contemplate the long history of Old Town.
