There's much more to do: admire the masterpieces at Smithsonian American Art Museum, ponder the world of politics at Smithsonian Institution Building, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Washington National Cathedral, and examine the collection at National Air and Space Museum.

Los Angeles — 5 nights

City of Angels

Surrounded by mountain ranges, forests, valleys, beaches, and deserts, the metropolitan area of Los Angeles is home to over 17 million people.
Get outdoors at Big Bear Lake and Balboa Island. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to San Clemente Coastal Trail and 26-Mile Bike Path. Venture out of the city with trips to Snow Valley (in Running Springs), Dolphin & Whale Watching (in Newport Beach) and Victoria Beach (in Laguna Beach). There's still lots to do: explore the stunning scenery at Runyon Canyon Park, admire the masterpieces at Bhagavad-gita Diorama-Museum, tour the pleasant surroundings at Snow Summit, and get a new perspective on nature at La Brea Tar Pits and Museum.

To see where to stay, ratings, photos, and more tourist information, refer to the Los Angeles route planner.
