Your guided DC night tour begins at the U.S. Navy Memorial at 701 Pennsylvania Avenue NW - halfway between the White House and the U.S. Capitol - and will bring you a unique and breathtaking look at our nation's capital!

On your way to the White House (first stop), you'll pass the U.S. Botanic Garden, Grant's Memorial, the U.S. Navy Memorial, the Robert F. Kennedy Department of Justice, and the J. Edgar Hoover Federal Bureau of Investigation. When arriving at the White House, you'll also see the Executive Residence of the President and his family, as well as the Dwight D. Eisenhower Executive Office Building. This stop also includes a walk past Lafayette Park, honoring the Marquis de Lafayette, leader of French forces.

Moving along and on your way to the next stop - U.S. Capitol Building - you pass the National Archives, which houses historic U.S. documents - the original Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights. In route, you will also see the Newseum, the Canadian Embassy, and the National Gallery of Art.

Emerging in sight will be the U.S. Capitol, where you'll take in a memorable, two-mile-long, panoramic view of the Smithsonian Museums (the largest museum complex in the world), and the Washington Monument (the tallest, freestanding stone structure in the world), flooded with lights – creating an unforgettable experience.

Next, your next stop is the National World War II Memorial. Along the way, you will see the headquarters of the American Red Cross, the Daughters of the American Revolution, and the Organization of American States (OAS).

Once finished at the World War II Memorial, you will visit the beautiful Thomas Jefferson Memorial – which was built from 1938 –1943 – on the Tidal Basin, lined with cherry trees that were a gift of friendship to the People of the United States from the People of Japan.

Across the Tidal Basin, you'll visit the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Memorial – dedicated in 2011; quite a sight, at night!

On the walking part of this popular Washington, DC night tour - you will visit the Korean War Veterans Memorial, and via a nice stroll along the tree line, you will emerge in front of the Lincoln Memorial and Vietnam Veterans Memorials.

On the way to the last stop at the U.S. Navy Memorial, you will, once more, be able to take in a twinkling, and spectacular view of the Washington, DC landscape.
