What can you see on this Tour?
If you’ve ever wanted to see the sights of the capital city during the twilight hours, this is the tour for you! Washington DC really comes to life at night. The various landmarks look brilliant while illuminated and with this tour, you’ll see so many of them.
There are stops on the tour at which visitors can hop off and take a look around, such as the impressive Lincoln Memorial and the inspiring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial. The Lincoln Memorial is one of the best sights to see in the city, as it’s a humbling homage to the 16th president. The architecture of the memorial is astounding and is sure to inspire awe in any visitor. War memorials also take pride in the city, with the Korean War Memorials, of which appear especially striking at dusk. The Korean War Memorial is made up of 19 life-size soldier figures and, at night, these figures are illuminated by spotlights. It makes for a wonderful trip for those interested in military history or sculptures. A view from the coach at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall is also a humbling experience that you are sure to appreciate. There are almost 60,000 names on this war memorial of those who were killed or missing during the conflict.
These memorials are just a couple of the most famous in the city that are truly breathtaking at dusk. The White House is often pictured on television during the day, so not many realize how amazing it looks at night. The entire structure of the iconic building is lit and, on this tour, you’ll get the opportunity to take a picture in front of it! This is the quintessential Washington DC sight, so you wouldn’t want to leave the city without a photo opportunity.
While you’re touring the city, you’ll also get to see more of the city from the comfort of our motor coaches. Travel in comfort as you see the U.S. Capitol Building, Washington Monument, Pennsylvania Avenue and more. Our experienced and licensed driver guide will show you all of the sights and give you insider knowledge on their history.
