Day 1 : Fly to Washington

Today we begin our holiday getaway with a flight to our nation’s capital and check-in to our centrally located hotel for a five-night stay.

Once we’re settled in, get to know your fellow travelers at a Holiday Vacations Welcome Dinner at Clyde’s, a deluxe restaurant and tavern in Georgetown.


Day 2 : Memorials & The National Christmas Tree

This morning, enjoy breakfast at the hotel before an expert local guide joins us to share the city’s incredible history during an educational driving tour. View national memorials such as the Washington Monument, an iconic marble obelisk considered the most prominent feature of the skyline; the Jefferson Memorial, standing as a symbol of liberty and a site for reflection; and the Lincoln Memorial, overlooking the reflecting pool and the site of defining moments in the country’s history. A special stop will be the US Botanic Gardens’ holiday exhibit featuring model trains and plant-inspired recreations of famous United States train stations.

Later we visit the National Christmas Tree located on the Ellipse before the White House and stroll the Pathway of Peace, a walkway featuring uniquely decorated Christmas trees each representing a U.S. state or territory.


Day 3 : Union Station & The Kennedy Center

We begin our day with breakfast at the hotel, then depart for another fascinating day of touring. We remember the brave heroes of our nation’s history with visits to the Korean War Memorial, the World War II Memorial, and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.

Visit Union Station and see its extraordinary Christmas displays including enormous decorated wreaths and decked-out halls. The station’s central Christmas tree is an annual gift from Norway symbolizing their gratitude for support during World War II. Union Station is also an upscale shopping mall so now is a good time to seek out souvenirs!

Later we are guests at the Kennedy Center for a live performance of its annual NSO Holiday Pops! concert. This year’s feature performer is Leslie Odom, Jr., who sang America the Beautiful at the 2018 Super Bowl™ and earned a Tony® award for his role in the smash-hit Broadway musical Hamilton.


Day 4 : Holiday Markets & Ford’s Theatre

We have the day at leisure to make the most of our time in Washington, D.C. during the holiday season. Explore the Christmas Markets located in front of the American Art Museum and the National Portrait Gallery, or visit a National Museum or two.

Tonight we visit Ford’s Theatre, the site of Abraham Lincoln’s assassination, for a joyful performance of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. Feel the yuletide joy of this Christmas Classic as Ebenezer Scrooge discovers his redemption accompanied by music, singing, and rich onstage visuals.


Day 5 : Mount Vernon at Christmastime

Enjoy a lunch at nearby Mount Vernon Inn and taste the flavors of colonial America.

Today we savor breakfast at the hotel, then venture out of the capital city to neighboring Virginia and visit Mount Vernon, the plantation estate of George and Martha Washington on the banks of the Potomac River. Take in delightful 18th-century demonstrations and listen to stories from costumed interpreters as we tour the historic house.

Tonight our Holiday Vacations Farewell Dinner is held at Tony & Joe's Seafood Place, a scenic seafood restaurant overlooking the Potomac River.

Afterwards we board our motorcoach for an evening holiday illumination drive with stops at the Christmas tree at the Capitol’s West Lawn and more.

Return home with lifelong memories of our holiday season vacation in Washington, D.C.
