Departure from New York at approximately 6AM, along our way to our country's capital we cross the states of New Jersey, Delaware (a technical stop will be made) and Maryland where we can admire the different landscapes along the way.
Arrival in Washington DC, the beautiful capital of the United States, our first stop will be at the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum, where passengers can walk around as they please; then we go to lunch. At the end of lunch we begin by visiting the city: The White House (only the exterior, no entrance to the grounds), here we make a stop to take pictures; continuing along Pennsylvania Avenue to see the offices of City Hall, the FBI, the old post office building, and the National Archives building until we reach the United States Capitol where we can take pictures.
Here is where the two houses of Congress are located. This wonderful building is an example of American neo-classical architecture; the first stage was completed in 1800 thus making it one of the main attractions of the city.
Our journey continues to Arlington Cemetery in Virginia, this is a military cemetery established during the American Civil War on land belonging to Robert E Lee. It is located near the Potomac River, near the Pentagon. Veterans of all wars are buried in this cemetery, from the American War of Independence to military actions in Afghanistan and Iraq.
At the cemetery we will visit the graves of the Kennedy family (JFK / Robert / Edward) and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
After the visit to the cemetery our next stop will be a visit to the US Marine Corps War Memorial, better known as the Iwo Jima monument, made in bronze in commemoration of all Marines fallen in battle since 1775, we will have a short time to take pictures as we continue our journey to return to Washington DC; on the way we will have a panoramic view of the Pentagon.
Arriving at Washington DC we will pass the Washington Monument.
This granite marble and sandstone obelisk is a memorial to the first president of the United States, located in the west end of the National Mall, giving way to our next stop and point of interest; the Abraham Lincoln; Vietnam War and the Korean War monuments. Each of these monuments has its own particularities, personalities and insignias; you cannot miss this part of the walking tour where you can admire the beauty of each more closely. At the end of this last tourist spot we will return to the city of New York, firstly passing by the Martin Luther King Monument for a panoramic view coming in at night.
