    The Smithsonian Institute: Air and Space Museum, the International Spy Museum, the National Archives, and the National Museum of the American Indian are hallmarks of the DC experience. The city's best rated wine bars include Bistrot Lepic, the Cork Wine Bar, and Proof. The nightlife in DC offers great diversity. The Black Cat caters to the hipster music scene, while Cobalt spins retro jams from disco to 80's pop. Crossroads in Bladensburg, MD features sounds from the Caribbean. Have a wonderful trip!

    I-81 is a lovely drive, though mostly because you're looking east to the Shenandoah ridgeline. So if you have some time, why not drive Shenandoah NP's Skyline Drive (http://vacation.away.com/virginia/travel-v2-cid9353-shenandoah-national-park-cid2042-scenic-drives-vacations.html), which will get you off the interstate and onto the ridgeline. As you get down towards the Tennessee line, you might also check out the area around Mount Rogers NRA. Spend a night at the Fox Hill Inn in Marion, Virginia, and wake to fresh coffee, blueberry pancakes, plus a sunrise view of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Later, summit 5,729-foot Mount Rogers, Virginia's highest point.

    Not sure if this counts as historical or not but a tour of the infamous Eastern State Penitentiary might be a fun. You can see some of the sites in Philly's Old City and catch a bus near the Constitution Center for a short ride to the prison: http://www.easternstate.org And of course everyone can run the Rocky steps in front of the Philly Art Museum.

    Why not head down to Skyline Drive? it's definitely the quietest time of the year, but it'll be a nice contrast to the hustle and bustle of NOVA. You can walk the many trails it offers and enjoy the clean, crisp winter air. Or you could just spend your time indoors next to the fire place or in a hot tub outside.
