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 The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Washington DC: Horseshoe Casino (in Baltimore) and Antietam National Battlefield (in Sharpsburg). 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 take an in-depth tour of United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.
