Great packed day seeing all the important landmarks. Only issue was the lack of time to each lunch.

Set off on a full day-trip to Washington D.C., the capital city of the United States, from New York and visit Arlington cemetery, see The White House, the Capitol Building and other emblematic monuments followed by a panoramic tour of the city.

Washington DC Day Trip

Hop on an air-conditioned coach at 7 am from Manhattan and head south, through the states of New Jersey, Delaware and Maryland until you arrive in Washington D.C.

The first stop will be the renowned Arlington Cemetery, where you’ll follow your guide through the burial ground to President John F. Kennedy’s gravesite, then admire the Columbia Memorial dedicated to the fallen heroes of the Space Shuttle Columbia among other interesting sights. Depending on the day of the visit, you might also get the chance to enjoy the Chang of the Guard.

Next, you will visit the Marine Corps War Memorial followed by the National Mall. This national park in downtown Washington D.C. houses some of the city’s most impressive attractions, including the Lincoln Memorial, the Korean War Veterans Memorial, and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.

Continuing your tour of Washington D.C., you’ll discover the Washington Monument (also known as the Obelisk), on the way to the city's most famous attraction: The White House. No visit to Washington D.C. would be complete without taking in that world-renowned silhouette, home to the President of the United States.

Then, explore the Capitol, Ford’s Theatre, the site of Lincoln’s assassination, as well as stopping at the Air and Space Museum: where you'll have free time to visit one of Washington’s most-visited museums and have something to eat.

Then in the afternoon, the tour heads back to New York, arriving at about 8 pm.
