Detailed Tour Itinerary
 Tour Stop at  Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial
The Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial is dedicated to the memory of U.S. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Landscape architect Lawrence Halprin designed the memorial to represent the capstone of FDR's distinguished career. The memorial was dedicated in 1997 by President Clinton and is spread out over 7.5 acres. Sculptures throughout the memorial depict scenes from the Great Depression, the First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt, and the President's dog Fala.
 Tour Stop at  L'Enfant Plaza
Dedicated in 1968, L'Enfant Plaza is a compound of one governmental and three commercial buildings, including the "La Promenade" shopping mall. The plaza is named for Pierre Charles L'Enfant, the architect and planner who first designed a street layout for the capital city.
 Tour Stop at  World War II Memorial
Honoring the 16 million who served in the armed forces of the U.S., the 400,000 who died, and all who supported the war effort from home, the World War II Memorial is an awe-inspiring monument in Washington D.C. As the only 20th Century event commemorated on the National Mall's central axis, the World War II Memorial is a monument of spirit, sacrifice, and commitment by the American people.
 Tour Stop at  Washington Monument
The most prominent and recognizable figure in Washington D.C., the Washington Monument is a 555-foot marble obelisk that honors the nation's founding father, George Washington. Washington led the Continental Army to victory and then went on to become the nation's first president.
 Tour Stop at  Union Station
With over 25 million visitors every year, it's not surprise that Union Station is the most visited destination in Washington D.C.! The station serves as a train departure, premier shopping mall, and a venue for world-class exhibitions and cultural events. Inside the station you will find 130 stores, food court, and full service restaurants like Pizzeria Uno, Thunder Grill, and Johnny Rockets!
 Tour Stop at  Holocaust Memorial Museum
The Holocaust Memorial Museum is an awe-inspiring memorial dedicated to the millions who died during the Nazi regime during World War II. The museum features a permanent exhibit which presents a narrative history of the Holocaust from 1933-1945. The exhibit features 70 video monitors, four theatres showing film footage and eyewitness testimonies, and over 900 artifacts.
 Tour Stop at  U.S. Capitol
The Senate and House of Representatives have been meeting in the U.S. Capitol for more than two centuries! Today, the Capitol is one of the most architecturally remarkable and symbolically significant buildings in the entire world. Since 1973 the Capitol has been built, burnt, rebuilt, extended, and restored. At an astounding 58,000 square-feet, the Visitor Center in the U.S. Capitol is the largest project in the Capitol's entire history. The entire facility is located underground on the east side of the Capitol so as not to detract from the appearance of the Capitol and the grounds designed by Frederick Law Olmsted in 1874.
 Tour Stop at  U.S. Botanic Garden
Supervised by the Congress through the Architect of the Capitol, the United States Botanic Garden is the oldest continually operating botanic garden in the U.S. Located near Garfield Circle, the Botanic Garden is open every day of the year including holidays and consists of three locations: the Conservatory, Bartholdi Park, and the Production Facility.
 Tour Stop at  National Museum of the American Indian
Located on the National Mall in Washington D.C., the Smithsonian's National Museum of the American Indian showcases Native American objects from pre-Columbian civilizations through the 21st Century. In the museum guests can find multimedia presentations, live performances, and hands-on demonstrations that bring the history and culture of the Native American to life.
 Tour Stop at  National Museum of American History
The National Museum of American History has collected and preserved over 3 million artifacts of American culture and history from the War of Independence to the present day. Having reopened in 2008 after a 2 year and $85 million renovation, the museum provides a dramatic presentation of the original Star-Spangled Banner, the opportunity to see the actual White House copy of President Lincoln's Gettysburg Address and countless other items from American history.
 Tour Stop at  National Air and Space Museum
Visit the National Air and Space Museum in Washington D.C. for an unforgettable experience! Guests to the museum can take a journey through space or to natural and manmade wonders at the Lockheed Martin IMAX Theater or take a 20-minute tour of the universe at the Albert Einstein Planetarium. The National Air and Space Museum is continuously developing new exhibits on the history, science, and technology of aviation and space flight.
 Tour Stop at  Lincoln Memorial
An iconic landmark on the National Mall in Washington D.C., the Lincoln Memorial is a tribute to President Lincoln. President Abraham Lincoln fought to preserve our nation during the Civil War and his monument is a fitting structure with seven-foot diameter columns that reach 44 feet high. The structure's 36 columns represent each of the 36 states in the Union at the time of Lincoln's passing. Inside the structure sits a 19-foot tall marble statue of Lincoln.
 Tour Stop at  Jefferson Memorial
The Jefferson Memorial in Washington D.C. is one of the most popular attraction in the capital. The dome-shaped rotunda that honors our third president, Thomas Jefferson, houses a 19-foot bronze statue of Jefferson surrounded by excerpts form the Declaration of Independence and other writings by Jefferson. From the steps of the memorial, one can easily see the White House.
 Tour Stop at  The Hirshorn Museum
The Hirshhorn Museum contains approximately 11,500 works including paintings, sculptures, photographs, collages, and decorative art objects. The pieces inside the museum focus on collections of the 20th Century, particularly those of the last 50 years.
