Washington DC
— 6 nights

days
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.
Get some historical perspective at Tomb of the Unknowns and Antietam National Battlefield. Museum-lovers will appreciate Ford's Theatre and National Gallery of Art. Venture out of the city with trips to Harpers Ferry National Historical Park (in Harpers Ferry), Gettysburg (Eisenhower National Historic Site & Gettysburg National Military Park) and US Naval Academy Museum (in Annapolis). There's much more to do: examine the collection at Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum, test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms, learn more about the world around you at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, and take an in-depth tour of United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.
