November 15, 2022

Upon your arrival to Washington, D.C. you will be met by your private motor coach to begin your exciting, patriotic adventure. After lunch*, you will transfer to your hotel for check in before you head to the Smithsonian National Zoological Park*, one of the oldest zoos in the United States and currently home to more than 1,500 animals across 300 different species. Continue your trip with a visit to one of the highlights of your patriotic journey, the National Archives*, where you will view some of the most important documents in our nation’s history, including The Declaration of Independence. Then travel by metro* to explore the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center* before dinner*.

 

November 16, 2022

This morning will begin with a visit to Arlington National Cemetery*, resting place for so many American heroes.  Here, witness Kennedy’s Eternal Flame, the solemn Changing of the Guards Ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, and visit the memorials dedicated to the Space Shuttles Columbia and Challenger following the ceremony. You will then travel to the Pentagon Memorial*, a permanent outdoor memorial to the victims of September 11th. Following lunch*, there will be time to explore the Smithsonians such as the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History*, where the Hope Diamond is currently on display. Visit the National Museum of African American History and Culture*, the only national museum devoted exclusively to the documentation of African American life, history, and culture. Dinner* will precede a guided tour* of some of the many memorials dedicated to the pride and sacrifice of the American people, such as the Jefferson, FDR and MLK Memorials*.

Start today with a visit to Ford’s Theatre and Lincoln Center*, which will showcase the 16th President, Abraham Lincoln, and his presidency, assassination and legacy. You will continue your day with a scheduled visit to the Capitol Building*(pending availability). The Senate and the House of Representatives have met at the Capitol for over 200 years. Enjoy lunch* before you explore the Library of Congress* and the Supreme Court*, which is the final judge in all cases involving laws of Congress, and the highest law of all — the Constitution. Next, visit the Museum of the Bible*, which documents the narrative, history, and impact of the Bible and has the only exhibition of Israeli antiquities outside of Israel. There will be time for souvenir shopping tonight after dinner*.

Some of the exhibits you will find at these museums include the original Star Spangled Banner, Julia Child’s kitchen, the Wright 1903 Flyer and the Apollo 11 command module, Columbia. You will then partake in a humbling experience at the Holocaust Memorial Museum*, both a touching and vivid reminder of those who were persecuted and a supplication against such inhumanity.
