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.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Breezy Point Beach and Campground and Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History. Step out of the city life by going to Tidal Basin and National Mall. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Washington DC: Gettysburg National Military Park (in Gettysburg) and Baltimore (Horseshoe Casino Baltimore & Fell's Point). Next up on the itinerary: see the interesting displays at Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum, stop by Politics & Prose Bookstore and Coffeehouse, admire the striking features of Bluemercury Union Station, and get engrossed in the history at Ford's Theatre.
