DC In a Day:
U.S. Capitol Building -- group gets off and walks to Visitor Center Entrance. Guided tours of the Capitol (which we can no longer consistently book in advance, so it may require getting free, same-day passes on your own) begin at one of the Capitol Visitor Center’s orientation theaters with a 13-minute film, "Out of Many, One," which will take you on a journey through the United States' struggle to establish the world's first truly representative democracy and introduce you to the magnificent building that houses Congress. Once inside the historic Capitol, visitors will see the Crypt, the Rotunda, and National Statuary Hall. All tours begin and end at the Capitol Visitor Center.
