1 Day Monuments and Memorials in Washington DC



Description:

This is a one day trip, designed to give those who have never been to DC an opportunity to see some of the nation's most impressive monuments and landmarks in a single day trip. It is designed to start early (9 AM), and should allow enough time to see a good portion of every major monument in the DC area. It is also designed to also keep expenses down. Except for lunch, and potentially a cab ride to and from lunch or Arlington Cemetery, almost everything is free. This should leave you with plenty of money to purchase patriotic paraphernalia. The itinerary should allow individuals to get a flavor of DC, and still make it home for dinner.
