We’ll continue our travels toward Washington DC where we’ll visit Arlington Cemetery. Travel aboard a narrated tram making stops at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier & the JFK gravesite.
A local step on guide will join us for a tour of Washington D.C. We will try to see as many of the famous monuments as possible. Including the Thomas Jefferson Memorial, Lincoln Memorial, National World War II Memorial, Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial, Korean War Memorial and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. We’ll view the White House, the U.S. Capitol Building, Washington Monument and many other sites. Enjoy some free time to visit some of the museums of the Smithsonian Institute.
One of the best and most scenic ways to travel to George Washington’s Mount Vernon is down the Potomac River. We’ll board the Spirit of Mt. Vernon in Washington DC for a 1 ½ hour cruise to Mount Vernon. This historic estate includes not only the Mount Vernon Mansion, George and Martha Washington’s home, but also a host of colonial era buildings, beautiful gardens, a working distillery and gristmill, and museum.
We’ll visit St. John’s Church in Richmond, VA, where Patrick Henry proclaimed, “Give me liberty or give me death”.
Visit Colonial Williamsburg, the largest living history museum in the country. Inside this Historic Area stand hundreds of restored, reconstructed, and historically furnished buildings. Costumed interpreters tell the stories of the men and women of the 18th-century city. We won’t just learn about the past, at Colonial Williamsburg we’ll live it.
Enjoy a truly authentic and unique Colonial experience at our included Tavern Lunch.
Discover the start of Colonial America at Jamestown Settlement. We’ll take a guided tour of the re-creations of a Powhatan Indiana village, 1607 Ships and James Fort.
