Washington DC — 4 nights

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 outdoors at Tidal Basin and Quiet Waters Park. Step off the beaten path and head to U.S. National Arboretum and Georgetown. Go for a jaunt from Washington DC to Annapolis to see U.S. Naval Academy about 50 minutes away. There's much more to do: wander the streets of Capitol Hill, learn more about the world around you at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, step into the grandiose world of Smithsonian Institution Building, and admire the masterpieces at Smithsonian American Art Museum.
