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.
You'll explore and learn at National Museum of African American History and Culture and Smithsonian American Art Museum. Attractions like The Adventure Park at Sandy Spring and North Beach make great kid-friendly stops. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Washington DC: Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge (in Cambridge), Ford Orientation Center (in Mount Vernon) and Gettysburg (Devils Den, Gettysburg National Cemetery, & more). There's much more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Hillwood Estate, Museum & Gardens, take in the spiritual surroundings of Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, pause for some photo ops at Air Force Memorial, and explore the world behind art at National Portrait Gallery.
