Family Vacation Tours - Washington

The nation's capital – with its rich history, breathtaking architecture, and myriad tourist attractions – is a popular sight for a family vacation. Check out the city's 10-day weather report, familiarize yourself with the D.C. Metro system, plot down a travel itinerary, and get going.
While it can be interesting to learn history from textbooks, nothing brings history to life like seeing the places and landmarks that are part of America’s history. On this family vacation, you and your family will have an opportunity to visit some of America’s historical treasures, including Independence Hall in Philadelphia and Arlington National Cemetery in Washington DC. 
Step back in time in Jamestown, the first permanent English settlement in the new world, and Colonial Williamsburg, where costumed villagers reenact life in 18th -century Virginia. See the meeting place for Thomas Jefferson, Patrick Henry, and other patriots, and enjoy a colonial-style lunch at a local tavern, where you’ll experience a recreated dining experience savored by 18th-century patriots. Tour Gettysburg National Military Park, where you’ll hear about the Battle of 1863, and have fun on a ghost tour of this historical area.
Historical treasures are not the only thing offered on this marvelous vacation. Discover the Luray Caverns—a subterranean wonderland with stalagmites, stalactites, and even sparkling lakes—and the breathtaking beauty of Shenandoah National Park. Learn about a new culture when you visit an Amish farm and house, and hear about a way of life that excludes the use of modern conveniences such as electricity and telephones. For chocolate lovers in your family, a chocolate-making experience at Hershey’s Chocolate World is sure to delight.
