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.
National Air and Space Museum and Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History will appeal to museum buffs. Get some historical perspective at Washington National Cathedral and The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Get out of town with these interesting Washington DC side-trips: Baltimore (Horseshoe Casino, Sagamore Spirit Distillery, & more), Gettysburg National Military Park (in Gettysburg) and The Point (in Harpers Ferry). There's much more to do: admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Art, get engrossed in the history at United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Copper Fox Distillery, and admire all the interesting features of Antietam National Battlefield.
