Summary
Spend a day uncovering Washington DC and taking in everything the nation's capital has to offer
Description

As America’s cultural centre, Washington DC is more than just the home of the President. DC is rich in history, proud in heritage, and a fascinating multi-layered destination.

* Stand in awe of the Washington Monument, once the tallest structure in the world in 1884. 
* Admire the Lincoln Memorial - see if you can spot the carved mistake on a word on the north wall - it’s been touched up, but can still be seen. 
* Learn about the importance of the Potomac River on the history of the city. 
* See DC’s ‘Big 3’: the Capitol, White House and Supreme Court. 
* See the first equestrian statue ever made in the United States. 
* Enjoy a delicious local lunch of your choice of DC eatery (_paid locally by guest_). 
* Immerse yourself in the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum. 
* Explore the National Museum of American History, home to the original Star-Spangled Banner. 
* Discover which DC home has 35 bathrooms, 412 doors, 147 windows and 6 stories.

At 68-square-miles, Washington DC has more than the political arena with which to seduce its many visitors, from the secrets of the FBI Building, CIA Headquarters to over 70 museums devoted to almost every topic, including an International Spy Museum, American Indian art and African-American culture. On your **DC in a Day: Full Day Highlights Tour**you will discover the heart and soul of America’s capital district, on a guided journey to its key attractions that do DC justice - politics and all.

As you discuss the city’s role in historical events, you will journey around DC’s most famous memorials, monuments and landmarks to read the Gettysburg Address inscription at the Lincoln Memorial and reflect on the impact of America’s Civil War. The beautiful Korean War Veterans Memorial and the Vietnam Memorial both evoke the sobriety of America’s involvement in overseas conflicts. At the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial, it is impossible not to feel uplifted and inspired by the power of the words he penned for his famous _I Have a Dream_address. DC is spoiled for choice for world class-exhibitions and museums, and your **DC in a Day: Full Day Highlights**finale are two absolute gems - the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum and the National Museum of American History.

The Apollo Lunar Module LM2, Dorothy's ruby slippers and Washington's forged steel battle sword are just a handful of the museum’s 3-million items in a compelling collection.
