Just because the inauguration has come and gone does not mean that there is no longer a reason to visit Washington, DC. Why not take a trip to this historical city at your leisure and explore it from the inside out to see what really makes it tick? With DC Tours, you have many different opportunities to do just that, with lunch and dinner cruises, night tours, and historical tours at your disposal.
If you are looking for a general overview of the city, take the Washington DC Hop-On-Hop-Off Open-Top Double-Decker Bus Tour. With 25 stops throughout DC, there are lots of opportunities to get off the bus and walk around. You can rejoin the tour at any time, and your ticket is good for two days with unlimited use during that time. Should you decide to take the trip straight through, it will take you about two and a half hours in total. Some of the stops along the way include Union Station, the US Capitol, Lincoln Memorial, Ford’s Theatre, Arlington National Cemetery, Embassy Row, and many others. You can even follow the loop completely through once to get the lay of the land and then pick it up again later or the next day to revisit the stops of your choice.
As you can imagine, the city looks completely different during the day than it does at night. That is where the Washington DC After Dark Tour comes in. Your coach will take you to many of the sights listed above, but this time you will see them, quite literally, in a whole new light. You will stop to check out the FDR and Vietnam Memorials, the nation’s Capitol building, the White House, and all the other structures that have become a significant part of US history, all shining brightly amid the backdrop of the night sky.
Once you have seen the basic layout of the city, you are ready to step inside some of the historicalbuildings that make up the landscape, and you can do this on the Washington DC Interior Buildings Tour. While you will take a drive past the FBI Building, Washington Monument, and the Supreme Court, you can actually venture inside the World War II Memorial, National Air and Space Museum, the US Capitol and other well-known landmarks, making your experience that much richer.
While you may have missed seeing the new President get sworn in this month, that doesn’t mean you should miss out on experiencing the history and fun that awaits you in Washington, DC altogether. Take a trip to the city this winter and you will be very glad that you did. For more information, visit www.dctours.us and book your tickets today!
