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've added National Museum of Women in the Arts, George Washington's Mount Vernon, President Lincoln's Cottage, and other attractions to your itinerary. Kids will enjoy National Air and Space Museum and Vietnam Veterans Memorial. Venture out of the city with trips to Clue IQ: An Escape Room Experience (in Frederick), Gettysburg (Victorian Photography Studio & 12th & 44th New York Infantry Monument) and Mount Vernon Trail (in Arlington). And it doesn't end there: get a new perspective on nature at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, appreciate the history behind Washington Monument, explore the world behind art at National Gallery of Art, and get to know the resident critters at National Zoological Park.
