Plus New National Museum of African American History & Culture
OCTOBER 13 – 15, 2017 3 DAYS/ 2 NIGHTS
A tour of Washington, D.C. is like experiencing history firsthand. We’ll spend a full day seeing the sights in Washington with our local tour guide. We’ll hit all the highlights including Capitol Hill, home of the United States Capitol, the Library of Congress and the Supreme Court. We’ll make a photo stop at the White House and we’ll visit Washington National Cathedral, Embassy Row and drive through Georgetown, along with a few other surprises. And of course, we’ll also have time to visit the Memorials.
Our host for two nights will be the Marriott Courtyard Capitol Hill located just 6 blocks from the U.S. Capitol Building.
No visit to Washington would be complete without spending some free time at the Smithsonian, the world’s most visited museum. The newest Smithsonian museum opened September 24, 2016, on the National Mall near the Washington Monument, and has welcomed more than 1 million visitors to date. It is the only national museum devoted exclusively to the documentation of African American life, art, history, and culture. The Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture is a state-of-the-art building that addresses nearly every aspect of the African American experience, covering the arts, slavery, the Civil Rights Movement, athletics and much more. The journey to open the museum which began in 1915 has taken many attempts and numerous steps to realize, culminating in the construction of an inspiring new building containing over 37,000 artifacts.
Washington DC is one of the most beautiful cities in the world at night. You’ll have a guided illumination tour aboard our bus and see the lights of Washington DC, including the Capitol, the major monuments, the Kennedy Center, and the National Mall — all lit up at night!
Includes: Bus transportation, 2 nights accommodations at the Marriott Courtyard Capitol Hill, 2 breakfasts and 2 dinners, all sightseeing, plus taxes, gratuities and baggage handling.
