Meet your guide at a central location in the heart of Washington, DC, and start the tour by fitting out with a bike and safety equipment. Follow your guide along a route that takes in some of DC’s highlights: Stand at the foot of the solemn Lincoln Memorial. Visit the Jefferson Memorial and the Franklin D. Roosevelt Memorial, then pay your respects at the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial.
See a trio of monuments that remember some of America’s most devastating wars, from the wall of names at the Vietnam Memorial to the haunting figures of the Korean War Veterans Memorial and the grand World War II Memorial. Pause for lunch at the National Mall—pack your own or get tips on the best places to purchase a meal—then continue to Arlington National Cemetery.
Visit the Kennedy Gravesite and L’Enfant’s Tomb in the sprawling, 625-acre (253-ha) cemetery, and see the Tomb of the Unknowns, a memorial to unidentified American service members. Finish the day in central DC, close to the city’s best attractions, restaurants and sights. Children are welcome on this family friendly tour.
