Description

Explore Washington, D.C capital on a new perspective as you join a night tour like no other! Hop aboard an electric vehicle for 5 and stroll around to search for and admire the capital's treasured monuments and memorials.

Among the famous historic structures that you will get up close with is the iconic Washington Monument, a monument that was planned to be built even before Washington's presidency. This monument has survived a 5.8-magnitude earthquake in 2011 and fortunately, no one was seriously hurt during the incident.

Another great visit is the Jefferson Memorial and MLK Memorial which displays a neoclassical style of architecture (Jefferson Memorial) and had over 900 applicants during the design competition (MLK Memorial).

Next is the FDR Memorial which is not only dedicated to Franklin Delano Roosevelt, but to his wife, Eleanor Roosevelt, as well. Visit the WWI and WWII Memorials to witness a serene Greek-style structure and an attractive fountain display respectively.

Come to the famed Lincoln Memorial, a 99-foot memorial housing a 19-foot tall sitting sculpture of President Lincoln himself. Martin Luther King, Jr. gave his speech,"I have a dream" on this memorial's steps. Venture into the Korean War Memorial a peaceful memorial built for those who fought in the Korean War. Surrounded with statues depicting the fallen soldiers, this memorial will surely move you.

Explore the walls of the Vietnam Memorial where the names of the men and women who served during the Vietnam War are inscribed. As of today, names are still being added to the 3-acre national memorial. Enjoy visiting the Capitol Hill where you will be able to see spectacular views of the Library of Congress, the dome of the U.S. Capitol, and the Supreme Court Building.

Last but not the least, see the White House up close. Marvel at the sight of this beautiful, illuminated structure under the evening sky. This world-famous structure contains 132 rooms and 32 bathrooms in all 6 of its floors. 570 gallons of paint are required to paint the whole of the White House.
