Day 1 - Welcome To Washington, D.C.
Transfer and check in to your hotel. This evening, join your tour manager and fellow travelers for a welcome dinner and a guided Illuminated Monument Driving Tour. Washington's grand buildings, memorials, and monuments sparkle and are impressive during the day, but they are stunning at night! Stop at the Pentagon 9/11 Memorial Park and National World War II Memorial before returning to your hotel.
Day 2 - Visit Arlington National Cemetery
After breakfast, depart for Arlington National Cemetery — no land in America is more sacred. It is America's shrine to valor and sacrifice, and services an average of 27 funerals a day. The crews, service members and groundskeepers follow an elaborate choreography to ensure that each funeral feels like it is the only one taking place. Enjoy lunch on your own. In the afternoon, visit the National Mall, and spend time visiting your choice of the Smithsonian Institution museums. Continue with a Pink Tied Stroll and photo opportunity among the Japanese cherry trees along the Tidal Basin. Stops will be made at the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Memorial, the Franklin D. Roosevelt Memorial and the Jefferson Memorial. The evening is at your leisure.
Day 3 - Experience The Cherry Blossom Parade
This morning, depart for the Cherry Blossom Parade, where you will receive your signature Cherry Blossom pin and pink pompoms to cheer on your favorite performers! Your premium preferred grandstand seating will be the perfect viewing point as the colorful parade goes by. This afternoon's sightseeing includes the Capitol Visitor Center on Capitol Hill (with lunch on your own at the underground Capitol Visitor Center Cafeteria) and the United States Library of Congress. Later, board the Odyssey III cruise ship for a Cherry Blossom Cruise on the Potomac. A narrator will point out all the sites along the river, while you enjoy a welcome pink signature drink and a delicious early dinner. Wear pink today to help make your cruise especially festive. The evening will end with a Perfectly Pink Reception atop The Observation Deck at CEB Tower.
Day 4 - Head To Mount Vernon
After breakfast, start your day exploring Washington with visits to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, Korean War Veterans Memorial, Marine Corps War Memorial, Air Force Memorial and the Lincoln Memorial. Lunch will be on your own in Old Town Alexandria, where there will be an abundance of restaurants to choose from and enough free time for you to explore. After lunch visit Mount Vernon estate, the home and final resting place of George Washington. This southern plantation standing on the banks of the Potomac River details the life of the "Father of Our Country " while providing fascinating insights into Colonial times. End your day at the Waterfront District at National Harbor, a 350-acre resort destination with many restaurants and lots to see and do. Immerse yourself in the sights, scents and sounds of a unique waterfront wonderland. From fresh artisan cheeses to family-friendly fun and the Capital Wheel, National Harbor is the place to be.
