- See Washington’s monuments at their most magical
- One of the DC must-dos
One thing that is on almost every itinerary when visiting the American capital is a tour of the monuments. Some of the country’s most important and iconic statues and structures are on display here, including the FDR and MLK memorials, the Washington monument and of course the huge Lincoln memorial to the man many see as the father of the nation. Beginning at the prestigious Smithsonian complex, where you’ll be picked up in a funky electric roadster by a professional local guide, this is your indispensable tour of the seat of American political history.
Your Washington DC gift experience covers many more unmissable sites of course. See the Supreme Court, the Capitol Building, the Library of Congress and of course the White House. You’ll enjoy breathtaking views of the Tidal Basin at sunset, the Potomac River and the National Mall, and all the while be learning about how America, and the world, has been shaped by the political minds and strategies based in this city. Totally indispensable.
