Set off on a full day-trip to Washington D.C., 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 7am 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 appreciate the Change of the Guard.

Continuing your tour of Washington D.C., you’ll discover the Federal Reserve, the Washington Monument (also known as the Obelisk), the World War II Memorial and you’ll drive past the OEA and the Red Cross headquarters until you get to the city’s most symbolic attraction, The White House.  

Then, explore the Capitol, Ford’s Theatre, the site of Lincoln’s assassination and the FBI headquarters. At lunch time, you’ll stop at the Air and Space Museum. You’ll have time to visit one of Washington’s most-visited museums at your own leisure and have something to eat.

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, The Three Soldiers and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.

In the late afternoon, you’ll enjoy a panoramic city tour and then head back to New York.
