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.
Escape the urban bustle at Elkwallow Picnic Area and Hawksbill Mountain. Jefferson Patterson Park & Museum and St. Clement's Island State Park will appeal to museum buffs. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Washington DC: Bull Run Mountains Natural Area Preserve (in Broad Run), Shenandoah National Park (Limberlost Trail, Pinnacles, & more) and The Aldie Peddler (in Aldie). There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Inside Ski Training Center, get engrossed in the history at United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, and identify plant and animal life at Phillips Wharf Environmental Center.
