Washington DC

— 5 nights
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.
Museum-lovers will appreciate National Air and Space Museum and Ford's Theatre. Get some historical perspective at Gettysburg National Military Park and Antietam National Battlefield. Step out of Washington DC with an excursion to Horseshoe Casino in Baltimore--about 1 hour away. There's lots more to do: steep yourself in history at Arlington National Cemetery, learn more about the world around you at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, contemplate the waterfront views at Tidal Basin, and admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Art.
