Enjoy a full day of sightseeing with a licensed guide. Highlights will include the U.S. Capitol, Supreme Court, Vietnam Memorial, the World War II Memorial and much more. This evening we will enjoy dinner on the shores of the Potomac River.
DAY FOUR – CB, L
At Arlington National Cemetery, America honors the men and women who have valiantly served the nation and given the ultimate sacrifice. We will view the Changing of the Guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Visit the gravesites of John F. Kennedy, his wife Jacqueline and Brother Robert.
This morning we travel along the Parkway to Mount Vernon for a visit to George Washington’s home. Set on a picturesque spot along the Potomac River, it is difficult to believe that Washington could have ever left it for years at a time. Our tour will include a stop at the gravesites of George and Martha Washington. After lunch, we travel back to the District where you will begin your free time to explore the capital city.
DAYS FIVE & SIX – CB
The next two days are FREE for independent exploration of the area. Perhaps you can return to the Smithsonian Institution’s many museums along the Mall. Another popular choice might be the National Zoo to see the world-famous pandas.
Visit the Washington Cathedral or the Basilica Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception. Or arrange to have a meeting with your Senate or Congressional representatives (prior to departure). Historical Alexandria is just a short subway ride away too with wonderful shops and restaurants. All are possible personal options on these two free days.

Later we begin our journey westward through Maryland to our accommodations in Sandusky, OH for our last night out at the Hampton Inn.
