You might want to see all the U.S. Capitol has to offer, but navigating those avenues and one-way streets might seem a little daunting. Let us do that for you with our Washington D.C Day Trip. From the Oval Office to wax celebrities, you will get to see the full range of this town’s history and humor and you won’t even have to write an itinerary.
All the Incredible Sights, Memorials and Museums
On this Day Trip from NYC, you’ll get to see one of the most recognizable buildings in the world: the White House. The president has lived and worked in this building since the era of the founding fathers. In today’s government, the town is filled with senators, representatives and other public officials who are dedicated to writing laws and policies.
The Air and Space Museum holds some of the future’s secrets as well. The exhibits take you back to the beginning of airlines, but they also show what is to come. From space ready vehicles to commercial aircraft, the museum predicts how the aviation field will evolve.
Next on this fantastic list of the District’s attractions are the presidential monuments. You’ll start with the man credited with abolishing slavery at the Lincoln Memorial. The giant sculpture will absolutely dwarf the engraving on the penny in your pocket, and the Washington Monument will completely take your breath away. The massive pillar rises sharply into the sky just like you’ve imagined.
The capitol acknowledges single great leaders as well as the soldiers they ordered into battle. Both the Vietnam Memorial and Korea Memorial pay homage to the service men and women who died in the line of duty. You’ll get to see the guards as they ceremonially start and begin their shifts.
On this Bus Tour from New York City, you’ll also get to see monuments dedicated to heroes who fought and won important battle domestically. The MLK Memorial serves to remind us of the power of peaceful protest and how far we’ve come since the African American civil rights movement. To round out the tour, you’ll take a turn around Madame Tussauds Wax Museum so you can snap a picture with your favorite celebrity.

On our bus tour, you can focus on soaking it all in while we navigate those hectic city streets. This city birthed much of the country’s history and will continue to set the tone of the coming decades. Get your cameras ready for a wonderful tour of Washington D.C.
