Posted by admin on September 2, 2015

When you think of this city you can probably list many famous landmarks and sights that you would enjoy seeing. These world renowned places might seem like they’re too far apart to see all in the one day but the Gray Line D.C. in a Day tour will make sure you get to take in all of the following.

The U.S Capitol Building

This building is known all over as an iconic piece of architecture that serves an integral purpose in the country. As such, no visit to this city would be complete without appreciating one of the seats of power in the USA.

The Capitol Building has such a rich history and amazing views so everyone can enjoy it, from the history aficionado to the art lover. The building is over 200 years old and tourists can get a feel for the day to day processes in the modern age with the inclusive building tour.

The White House

One of the most famous structures in the entire world is the White House and people travel far and wide to catch a glimpse of it. Taking pictures here allows you to record memories of your trip to the city while learning some fascinating information about the presidential home.

The World War II Memorial

This memorial is dedicated to all those who served in the Second World War and is a truly awe inspiring place to visit. This landmark features a water fountain and is the perfect place to pay tribute to the brave soldiers that served during this time.

Walking around this wonderful area will grant visitors the chance to stretch their legs and enjoy the surrounding area while getting some fresh air. This is also located very close to the Washington Monument so you’ll also be able to take in another famous sight of the city, all while keeping good time.  

The Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial

This is another dedicated sight that is located in the West Potomac Park, just outside of the city. This is a more rural area with some great space and views for tourists who want a different experience to the inner city rush.

Looking upon the 30ft statue is a fantastic way to spend some time and pay homage to one of the great historical figures of the 1900s. This is a truly unique memorial as it is one of the few non presidential monuments in this city and it’s one of the most recently opened.

Famous Sights from the Journey

To fit so many landmarks into one day is ideal for travellers and they can also view many more of these iconic buildings during the commute from one place to another. They can also see the FBI Building, the Federal Triangle, the National Archives and more while on the coach. See hundreds of years of history while just moving from one place to another to jam pack your day full of sights.
