Highlights
Spotlight on Washington, D.C.

U.S. Capitol Building Tour
Set on top of Capitol Hill and the eastern end of the National Mall, this building is home to the U.S. Congress. First used in November of 1800, the Capitol Building is a symbol of American democracy. Designed by a Scottish-trained physician living in the British West Indies, the building is made up of two rectangular parts with a centralized dome.

World War II Memorial
The National WW II Memorial is dedicated to the 16 million who served in the armed forces, the 400,000 who perished and all those who supported the war effort on the home front. Dedicated in 2004 and designed by architect Friedrich St Florian, the memorial sits in a place of honor on the National Mall. It was the culmination of an 11-year effort, mainly funded with private contributions.

Washington National Cathedral
Since the moment workmen laid the cornerstone in 1907, the Cathedral Church of St Peter and St Paul has been America's national worship site for people of all faiths. The church atop Mount Saint Alban overlooking the city has played host to the state funerals of Presidents Dwight D Eisenhower and Ronald Reagan. As well as being the place from which the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. preached his last Sunday sermon in 1968.

Ford's Theatre
A historic theatre in the center of Washington, D.C., Ford's Theatre is used for live performances. But Ford's is most famous as the assassination site of Abraham Lincoln in April of 1865. The President's death during the close of the American Civil War was a bid to revive the cause of the Confederacy and was carried out by a well-known actor, John Wilkes Booth.

Arlington National Cemetery
Comprised of land once developed by the grandson of George Washington, Arlington went on to become the home of Confederate General Robert E. Lee and later a village for the training and assistance of newly freed slaves. The first military burial took place here in 1864. Today Arlington's white headstones and monuments mark the final resting place of American heroes.

Mount Vernon
Situated on the banks of the Potomac River, Mount Vernon was the home of 1st U.S. President, George Washington. Explore 21 beautiful rooms spread out over the mansion's three floors or see the outbuildings that housed the important trades which helped to sustain the property. Washington redesigned the grounds of the estate to not only grow provisions but reflect a naturalistic 18th-century landscape.

Old Town Alexandria
Located along the Potomac River, Old Town Alexandria is home to historic streets, colonial architecture, and age-old hospitality. You’ll enjoy a dinner in a tavern that is famous for hosting George Washington and Thomas Jefferson.

White House Visitor Center
Located on famous Pennsylvania Ave, this Visitor Center allows guests to explore exhibits and films connected to the house of the US Presidents. On view are aspects of the architecture and furnishings of the White House as well as over 90 artifacts from the Executive Mansion.

Smithsonian Institution
The largest museum and research complex in the world, the Smithsonian consists of 19 museums/galleries and the National Zoo. British scientist James Smithson left his estate to the US with the express purpose of founding a center of knowledge in Washington, D.C. Today some of the more popular museums include the Air & Space, American History and Natural History museums.
