Our nation’s capital reflects all the history of America with remarkable monuments, museums and landmarks. Located along the Potomac River, Washington was founded on July 16, 1790. This dynamic city was established by the U.S. Constitution to be the new nation’s capital, and commissioned by President Washington to Pierre Charles L’Enfant to design it. Washington has been at the center of the history of the United States, and has experienced many phases – from the burning of the city in 1812 by the British, to the Civil Rights rallies and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s historic speech at the Lincoln Memorial, and all the presidential inaugurations with their pomp and circumstance. On this tour, you will visit many of the monuments and experience the local culture, politics and food. From the Supreme Court and White House, to Arlington National Cemetery and Smithsonian Institute, and to the Civil Rights Trail, you will understand why this city is so important, and why our nation is the beacon of freedom and civil liberties, and the most influential country around the world!

Arrive Washington and transfer to your well-located Washington D.C. downtown hotel for the next five nights. Our Nation’s Capital is a place unlike any other where you can explore Memorials, Monuments, and Museums to dive into history, civil rights, politics and more. Tonight, gather in the lobby to meet your local guide and enjoy a welcome dinner at Old Ebbitt Grill, the oldest dining saloon in D.C. founded in 1856 after being converted from a boarding house. Visitors of the boarding house included past Presidents McKinley, Grant, Johnson, Cleveland, Roosevelt, and Harding. Your home for the next five nights is a beautiful historic hotel with old world charm, located in the heart of downtown D.C. within walking distance from the White House and the United States Capitol.
