Washington DC — 7 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.
Step out of the city life by going to Great Falls Park and Old Rag Mountain Hike. Venture out of the city with trips to Stony Man Mountain Overlook (in Luray) and Gettysburg (Monument to Brigadier General Gouverneur Kemble Warren, Devils Den, &more). There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at National Air and Space Museum, explore the world behind art at National Gallery of Art, pause for some photo ops at Vietnam Veterans Memorial, and ponder the world of politics at Library of Congress.
