Washington DC

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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Washington DC: Horseshoe Casino Baltimore (in Baltimore) and Billy Goat Trail (in Potomac). There's much more to do: see the interesting displays at Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum, get a sense of history and politics at The White House, contemplate the waterfront views at Tidal Basin, and pause for some photo ops at Vietnam Veterans Memorial.

To find where to stay, maps, reviews, and tourist information, you can read our Washington DC sightseeing planner.
