  • Day 1

    Take a morning flight to Washington’s Reagan National Airport. From this in-town airport, it’s only a short drive to your hotel – a welcomed relief after a long day of travel! Hilton Hotel Arlington – 5 nights

  • Day 2

    Embark on a comprehensive city tour with our local guide extraordinaire, Sandra
    Sheksin. She will spin tales of Washington’s dynamic past and present while orienting you to the Mall (important for later in the itinerary when you have free time for Smithsonian and National Museums). You’ll see countless National Monuments, impressive governmental buildings both historic and modern (your tax dollars at work!), and the expansive parks and public spaces that make Washington, DC the striking city it is. (FB,L)

  • Day 3

    Begin your exploration of the Smithsonian Institution and National Museums today with a full day on the Mall. Your coach will operate “shuttle style” to facilitate easy movement and breaks. “D.C. After Dark” features selected beautifully illuminated monuments and the Kennedy Center after dinner. (FB,D)

  • Day 4

    A morning visit to Arlington National Cemetery includes a narrated tram tour with stops at the Tomb of the Unknowns for the Changing of the Guard ceremony and the home of General & Mrs. Robert E. Lee—no, that’s not a mausoleum on the hill! In the afternoon, take a ride into the country to visit the estate of George and Martha Washington, Mount Vernon. Tonight, dinner at Filomena Ristorante in Georgetown is a Sports Leisure favorite and sure to please. (FB,D)

  • Day 5

    Memorial Day offers a host of opportunities along our National Mall. Start the day with a visit to Ford’s Theatre and the Petersen House to relive President Lincoln’s final day. A new museum and interpretative center offer insight into this turbulent time in American history. From there your choices begin. Take your place along Constitution Avenue for the National Memorial Day Parade or use the time to continue your exploration of the Smithsonian Institution and National Museums. (FB,D)

  • Day 6

    A guided tour of the United States Capitol brings your vacation to a monumental end. Depart Washington National Airport in the early afternoon via Houston. (FB)
