Day Two: 
  • Enjoy breakfast at the hotel, check out, and visit Jamestown for a GUIDED Tour. Jamestown commemorates the first permanent English settlement in the New World. It features full-size replicas of the three ships that arrived in 1607, as nearly reconstructed as possible to show the size and hardships the hardy settlers had to face. The reconstructed Jamestown Fort is unique and seems to come to life with the costumed interpreters present to perform 17th century activities and interact with the audience.

Tour the Yorktown Victory Center, recapture the drama of the American Revolution, and see powerful galleries tell the story of everyday people who lived during the war. Costumed interpreters demonstrate 18th century military and domestic life on a re-created 1780s farm site.
  • Later in the afternoon, continue to Washington, D.C. and an included dinner is to be enjoyed on the way. Check-in to your local area hotel.

  • After an included dinner, visit the National World War II Memorial and see the city illuminated at night. Walk through The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts for a spectacular view of the city from the terrace and see the famous bronze bust of John F. Kennedy in the grand foyer. Two months after President Kennedy's assassination in November 1963, Congress designated the National Cultural Center as a "living memorial" to Kennedy and authorized $23 million to help build what is now known as the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
Day Four: 
  • Enjoy breakfast before we visit the Arlington National Cemetery to pay respects to the two presidents buried there, William Taft and John F. Kennedy. While visiting, witness the Changing of the Guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and offer thanks and respect to over 400,000 men and women in their final resting place.
  • Depart for the U.S. Marine Corps War Memorial. Also known as the Iwo Jima Memorial, the National Museum of the Marine Corps is a lasting tribute to U.S. Marines--past, present, and future. Situated on a 135-acre site adjacent to Marine Corps Base Quantico, Virginia, and under the command of Marine Corps University, the Museum's soaring design evokes the image of the flag-raisers of Iwo Jima and beckons visitors to this 120,000-square-foot structure. World-class interactive exhibits using the most innovative technology surround visitors with irreplaceable artifacts and immerse them in the sights and sounds of Marines in action.
  • After an included lunch, enjoy exploring the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History, American History, and Air & Space.
  • Next, take a walk around the Tidal Basin and see the Franklin D. Roosevelt Memorial. The memorial is divided into four outdoor galleries, or rooms, one for each of FDR’s terms in office.
