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.
Appreciate the collections at National Air and Space Museum and National Portrait Gallery. Take a break from the city and head to Devils Den and Tidal Basin. Change things up with a short trip to Horseshoe Casino in Baltimore (about 56 minutes away). There's still lots to do: admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Art, get engrossed in the history at United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, pause for some photo ops at Lincoln Memorial, and see the interesting displays at Newseum.
