Monday, April 1st -
1st pick up Community Bible Church - Be there 5:30am!
2nd pick up Sun City Peachtree - Be at Amenities Center 6am!
We will have quick bathroom breaks, a mall food court lunch break, and dinner at Golden Corral. This is a long travel day, and we need to keep moving as much as possible. We'll offer some morning granola bars and waters in the bus,
but we will not make a "breakfast" stop.
Tuesday, April 2nd -
Big first day of touring with local guide Hayden, including Smithsonian overview and visiting memorials (daytime & evening). Lunch on your own in the Supreme Court Building cafeteria before our tour of the Capitol Building in the afternoon, with additional city/museum touring, as time allows. We will provide a fairly expedient dinner in the Ronald Reagan Building before evening twilight touring.
Wednesday, April 3rd -
Museum of the Bible all day, if you want it. If you prefer to venture out for part of the day to explore elsewhere, you can do that. There is a nice little rooftop cafe for lunch available at the Museum of the Bible. Smithsonian Museums are within walking distance, if you enjoy walking (Air and Space is the closest museum). The DC Circulator is a ~$1 transportation option around the National Mall and Tidal Basin areas. Tonight we'll eat Italian at Topolino's near our hotel and have
after-dinner time to visit the beautiful National Harbor.
Thursday, April 4th -
Morning open time to visit museums/sites of your choosing. Our bus will have designated drop off and pick up points. FBI Headquarter touring this afternoon 1:30-3:30. Arlington National Cemetery tram touring 4-6pm (if you have a Military Card, would you kindly let us know?). Dinner at Present (Imperial Vietnamese) Restaurant in Falls Church, named in the top 50 northern VA restaurants in 2018, and whose chef was featured on Fox 5 news.
