Step back in history and experience the United States Government in our nationâ€™s capital, Washington, DC. A modern city with roots in the past, Washington provides eclectic entertainment while preserving the countryâ€™s history.
Also known as the District of Columbia, Washington offers many educational activities that make it a fitting destination for your next family party. The US Capitol provides a first hand look into the inner-workings of the US government while the majestic White House gives a first-hand glimpse into the home of the President. The city is home to a number museums and galleries to suit every interest. Travel to the Newseum for a look into the history of journalism. Do your kids (and adults) want to be spies? Visit the International Spy Museum to explore the history of espionage. Stand in awe at the life-size airplanes at the National Air and Space Museum or take in striking works of art at the Corcoran Gallery of Art.
Interested in letting loose after a day of educational activities? Head to Georgetown, a historic neighborhood lined with bistros, taverns, shopping, and hotspots. The cobblestone streets give way to electric nightlife and perfectly cap off a visit to Washington, DC.
