Depart for our Nation’s Capital with your Plymouth Travel Tour Director. Your modern motorcoach is airconditioned and restroom equipped. Enjoy movies and fun along the way. Stops will be made for rest breaks and lunch on your own. Dinner will be included en route at Old Country Buffet. Upon arrival in Washington D.C., check into your hotel. (D)

Start your day at the National Portrait Gallery, representing the wonderful diversity of individuals who have left–and are leaving–their mark on our country and our culture. As the nation's only complete collection of presidential portraits outside of the White House, the "America's Presidents" exhibition lies at the heart of the Portrait Gallery's mission to tell the country's history through the individuals who have shaped it. Generations of other remarkable Americans are kept in the company of their fellow citizens at the Gallery and through the visual and performing arts, we celebrate leaders such as Martin Luther King Jr., artists such as Mary Cassatt and George Gershwin, activists such as Sequoyah and Rosa Parks, and icons of pop culture such as Babe Ruth and Marilyn Monroe. They all link us to our past, our present, and our future. For anyone fascinated by famous Americans and their stories, the National Portrait Gallery is a must-visit destination. This afternoon is yours to explore the National Mall, “America’s Common”, on your own. The National Mall stretches from the U.S. Capitol Building to the Lincoln Memorial and is home to many inspiring monuments. It is also home to a number of museums and galleries, including the National Museum of Natural History, the National Air and Space Museum and many of the Smithsonian Institution buildings. Later , meet your Tour Director for an IMAX theater presentation. Dinner is on your own tonight followed by an evening tour of the “Monuments by Moonlight.” Your tour will include some of the city's most prominent landmarks such as the Capitol Building, the White House, the Jefferson Memorial, FDR Memorial, the Lincoln Memorial and the Washington Monument as well as Embassy Row, the National Cathedral, JFK Center for the Performing Arts and more. (B )

This special day begins with a narrated cruise on the Potomac River followed by a tour of Mount Vernon, the home of George and Martha Washington. George Washington is celebrated as the first President of the United States, but here you can get to know America’s first hero as an architect, innovative farmer and successful entrepreneur. Take a step back in time as you tour the restored plantation, stables and gardens. Partake in a hearty helping of colonial charm as lunch is served by waitpersons in period costume and find distinctive gift items in the shops of Mount Vernon. Please note that there is a significant amount of walking required for the Mount Vernon tour. Next, visit Alexandria, listed on the National Register of Historic Places and nationally recognized for its abundance of 18th- and 19th-century architecture, historic attractions, award-winning restaurants and eclectic shopping. Alexandria’s history reads like a Who’s Who of American History. George Washington, George Mason and Robert E. Lee are just a few of the famous Americans who had a hand in the heritage of this bustling seaport. Learn about the Ramsay House, a replica of the home of Scottish merchant and founder of Alexandria William Ramsay; Captain’s Row, a picturesque block of Federal homes built by sea captains; Gadsby’s Tavern, an important political and social center because of its location on the stage route between Boston and Williamsburg; George Washington’s Townhouse and more. A group dinner is included tonight. (B, L & D)

This morning, choose to attend services at the National Cathedral or visit Washington’s National Zoo. After lunch on your own at historic Union Station, journey to Arlington Cemetery and remember the American patriots, both humble and well-known, whose final resting place is in the wooded hills of Arlington. Here, you will board the tour mobile and tour the grounds with stops at Arlington House, the Kennedy gravesites and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. In addition to historic monuments and inspiring memorials, Washington D.C. is a city of colorful and diverse neighborhoods, filled with hip boutiques and galleries, historic homes and small museums, urban parks and spectacular gardens. Visit Georgetown, once a thriving colonial port, and now a charming historic neighborhood. Georgetown features specialty stores and intriguing restaurants and is home to the Dumbarton House, Tudor Place, the C&O Canal and the Old Stone House. Tonight enjoy a special farewell dinner. (B & D)

After an included breakfast, say farewell to Washington D.C., but not to the memories made on this tour. Enjoy a day of movies, games and surprises as we journey home. Stops will be made for rest breaks and lunch on your own. (B)
