Meet your guide at your hotel and make your way to the National Mall. For more than 200 years, the National Mall has symbolized our nation and its democratic values, which have inspired the world. The National Mall – the great swath of green in the middle of our capital city stretching from the foot of the United States Capitol to the Potomac River – is the premiere civic and symbolic space in our nation. The 1,000-acre green space includes the Washington Monument, the Lockkeeper’s House, the Lincoln Memorial, the World War II Memorial, the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, the Korean War Veterans Memorial, the Thomas Jefferson Memorial, the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool and the Franklin D. Roosevelt Memorial.
Continue your day across the river, exploring the vast history of Arlington National Cemetery. Established during the Civil War, the 624-acre area of land is the final resting place for presidents and over 400,000 active duty service members, veterans, and their families. On your walk, you will see the Tomb of the Unknown Solider, the grave site of President John F. Kennedy and Arlington House, which has stood on this site since 1805. You will also see the Air Force Memorial and Marine Corps War Memorial, better known as Iwo Jima.
A stop for lunch will be added during the tour.
