Enjoy a full day in Virginia, visiting two of the greatest attractions in the state. On this day trip from Washington DC, you’ll go back in time at Mount Vernon and see the most famous cemetery in the country.

Spend your morning at Mount Vernon — George Washington’s plantation home. During your visit you can tour the Mansion, as well a dozen other original structures, see Washington’s Tomb, and walk through the beautiful gardens and restored landscapes. While at Mount Vernon you will have time to eat lunch (not included).

Next, pass by Old Town Alexandria, the oldest section of Alexandria and its chief historical district. In Virginia you’ll see Christ Church, where famous figures from America’s past like George Washington and Robert E. Lee attended services. You’ll also admire the beautiful 17th- and 18th-century homes that line the quaint streets.

Your next stop is at Arlington National Cemetery, where you’ll board the cemetery’s tram that will take you to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. You’ll also see the unforgettable Changing of the Guard ceremony and the eternal flame that lights up the gravesite of John F. Kennedy.

After visiting the cemetery you’ll stop for photo opportunities at Iwo Jima Memorial (Marine Corps War Memorial), President John F Kennedy Gravesite, US Coast Guard Memorial, General Pershing Gravesite and the Arlington House (Robert E Lee House).

Had a great time on this tour. Our driver was excellent and we didn't feel rushed. Although our time at Arlington Cemetery didn't feel long enough so much to do. Our bus driver said we could stay longer, but would need to take the train back. Many of the passengers did just that, I would highly recommend that too. The best part was visiting Mount Vernon. Make sure to wait in line by the garden to get a tour of the inside of his home, we almost missed it. Also, as you head back to the food court, don't forget to stop by the small museum inside. Unfortunately, we missed it and didn't get to see some of Washington's belongings, including his dentures!
