Day 1

Today we travel south to Arlington, Virginia for a tour of Arlington National Cemetery, the final resting place for more than 400,000 active duty service members, veterans and their families. Arlington National Cemetery is an enduring tribute to those who've dedicated their lives to defending the ideals of our nation. A visit here will leave an indelible impression on your spirit. After free time for lunch on your own, we will attend the National Memorial Day Choral Festival Concert at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. Washington, D.C.'s annual Memorial Day Choral Festival honors those veterans past and present who have sacrificed so much for the liberties we currently enjoy in our country - as well as around the world. Today we remember our heroes through song in our Nation's Capital. After checking-in to our downtown hotel, we will enjoy dinner at a local restaurant.

Day 2

This morning we visit the National Museum of the Marine Corps, a lasting tribute to U.S. Marines - past, present, and future. Situated on a 135-acre site adjacent to Marine Corps Base Quantico, Virginia, and under the command of Marine Corps University, the Museum's soaring design evokes the image of the flag-raisers of Iwo Jima and beckons visitors to this 120,000-square-foot structure. World-class interactive exhibits using the most innovative technology surround visitors with irreplaceable artifacts and immerse them in the sights and sounds of Marines in action. We will then return to downtown DC for lunch on your own followed by the National Memorial Day Parade. The parade travels down Constitution Avenue and draws hundreds of thousands of spectators to the National Mall to pay tribute to those who have served, are serving, and most importantly those who have made the ultimate sacrifice while in service to our country. The National Memorial Day Parade is a moving timeline of American military history, honoring those who have served and sacrificed from the American Revolution to the present day. It draws on the tradition of Memorial Day parades, going back to the beginning of the holiday just after the Civil War, to create a family friendly event aimed at calling attention to the true meaning of Memorial Day - honoring our fallen heroes. We will depart for home at the conclusion of the parade. A dinner stop, on your own, will be included en route home.
