The National Mall is home to many of the most famous monuments including the Washington Monument and the Lincoln Memorial. The C&O Canal is a national historic park where you can canoe or kayak down calm waters in a beautiful setting for a quiet personal or family adventure.

Mount Vernon is the 500-acre estate of George Washington and his family, and the 14-room mansion is beautifully restored to its original condition when built in the 1740s. A walking tour of Old Town Alexandria will let you see some old colonial houses, public parks, museums, churches and lovely scenery along the Potomac River.
