What a great way to see the city and learn about the sites. It was interesting and fun too.

This proved to be a wonderful way to learn the Washington, DC area and to visit the memorials and monuments both at night and during daylight. We learned how to navigate using public transportation like the Metro and the Circulator Bus. The short boat ride on the Potomac from Arlington to Georgetown was wonderful. The bike routes were about perfect for a cyclist who rides at about an 8 to 10 mph pace. Using the bike lanes, especially down the middle of Pennsylvania Ave., was really fun. This is a good program to add days on your own at the end because there is much to see and after completing this program one knows how to navigate the D.C. area.
