A portrait of American history, this trip mixes the modern bustle of Washington, D.C. and landmarks from the Revolutionary and Civil Wars.
You'll enjoy Insider moments like… walking through historic Williamsburg and learning about the rich legacy and heritage of African American. Sylvia Tabb Lee uses moving songs to take you back to a time of unspeakable barbarity.
Visit the very spot where George Washington and Thomas Jefferson were inspired by Patrick Henry's fiery "Give me liberty or give me death" speech when you visit St. John's Church in Richmond, Virginia. Continue to Charlottesville where you'll enjoy lunch at a local restaurant. For a more genteel window into Jefferson's life, explore Monticello (translating to "little mountain"), his neoclassical Italian estate perched atop a hill. The rest of your day is free.
7 nights' accommodations, 7 full breakfasts, 3 dinners.
