Why You Shouldn’t Miss This
Washington, D.C., the capital city of the United States of America, is situated between Virginia and Maryland, on the northern bank of the Potomac River. Did you know that ’Washington’ in Washington, D.C., was named after George Washington, who chose the location, and ‘D.C.’, which is short for ‘District of Columbia’, was named after the explorer Christopher Columbus, who discovered America? This city houses all the branches of the federal government and their imposing neo-classical buildings, such as the White House, the Capitol Building, and the Supreme Court. Washington, D.C. is also home to several iconic museums and venues for the performing arts, like the Kennedy Center. The National Air and Space Museum is highly popular and attracts over nine million visitors each year!
Ever since the formation of the Niagara Falls, it has been the ideal location for explorers and adventurers. Here, you can immerse yourself in the sheer strength and beauty of nature as you take in the immensity of this natural wonder. Depending on the time of the year, you will get to see the Falls from different perspectives. Prepare to be spellbound by the magical atmosphere at the Niagara Falls!
Tour of Washington, D.C.:
Your tour begins in New York, from where you will enjoy a pleasant bus ride to Washington, D.C. Once you’ve met your tour guide, you will take a walk around the grounds of the Capitol, where you can take beautiful photos. You can even briefly visit the Smithsonian Museums nearby. You will continue to walk through the National Mall, where you will see the Lincoln Memorial, the World War II Memorial that overlooks the Rainbow Pool, and the Washington Monument. The World War II Memorial was constructed in honour of over four hundred thousand American citizens that died in the war. You will also visit the very famous Federal Reserve, the FBI, and the Pentagon Building. Post lunch, you’ll have the chance to check out more of the city with a brief visit to the Air and Space Museum, and a short stop at the Arlington Cemetery, which is famous for the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. In the afternoon, after returning to New York, you can appreciate the beauty of several skyscrapers in the city, and can take some pictures, provided there is enough time.
Tour of Niagara Falls:
When you visit New York, make it a point to not miss out on the chance to visit one of the most spectacular natural wonders of the world - the Niagara Falls. You will leave early in the morning and enjoy the stunning Appalachian Mountain landscape and the scenery of upstate New York. Do this with the comfort of on-board Wi-Fi and movies as you travel. When you arrive at the Niagara Falls, you will begin your tour at the upper area of the Falls. This enables you to soak in the true beauty of this national treasure from several unique perspectives. Based on the time of the year, you may get the chance to see the Niagara Falls from many different angles too. When it is warmer, you can even get close enough to the Falls to literally feel the force of the water as it forms spray and mist, creating cool breezes, as it crashes upon the rocks. During the colder parts of the year, usually from December to April, you can witness the Niagara Falls from a whole new vantage point. At the end of the tour you will have enough time for lunch and to visit souvenir shops and the grounds in the amazing Niagara Falls State Park. Finally, you will return to New York at night, at around 10 PM, with a memorable experience and stunning pictures.
If time permits, it may be possible for you to have a brief walk into Canada, provided you have your passport and the appropriate visa.
Upon arrival at your destination, you will begin experiencing the adventure, beauty, and natural wonder of the Niagara Falls on board of the historic Maid of the Mist boat cruise or, when the Maid of the Mist is not running, from other observation points such as Cave of the Winds Gorge Walk or others available based on the weather conditions.
