- Visit two of the biggest attractions in Virginia
- See many important landmarks during one day
This packed day out makes for an essential Washington DC gift experience that covers many of the most important sites in the area, including Fort Washington, the US Capitol, the Jefferson Memorial, the Potomac River and much more besides. But let’s focus on the two main visits, which begin with Mount Vernon, where you’ll tour the former home, gardens and farm of George Washington, one of the Founding Fathers of the United States. You’ll then move on to the quaint seaport of Old Town Alexandria for a walk around.
Next it’s on to Arlington Cemetery, where a tram ride takes you to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. You’ll witness the moving Changing of the Guard ceremony, and see the eternal flame at the grave of John F. Kennedy, as well as the Iwo Jima Memorial, the Pentagon Memorial and the Air Force Memorial. If you want to see as much as possible in Washington DC during a short space of time, then this tour is for you.
