I have a Question

Our liberty depends on the freedom of the press, and that cannot be limited without being lost.
— Thomas Jefferson

Library of Congress

Experiencing Washington, D.C. is an adventure! It is truly an international city — evident by the many peoples and languages we experience walking The National Mall numerous museums. For Americans, It is the nation’s Capital City — the epicenter of national political life and ongoing governmental decision-making. It is the seat of power for our nation’s three branches of government — Executive, Legislative, Judicial.

Although nearly two centuries “younger” than New York City or Boston, Washington, D.C. is America’s historic city where decisions of war and peace have been debated. When one visits the U.S. Capitol Building or the U.S. Supreme Court or the Library of Congress or the White House, there is a sense of awe that can be almost overwhelming. The wonderful Smithsonian Museums keep America’s history and culture alive and ready to explore. Washington’s monuments and memorials are exciting to behold. Arlington National Cemetery nearby is profound hallowed ground.

Five and one-half days are far too brief a time to fully experience America’s Capital City; however, Tim and Cathy Chambless will provide both a historical and cultural understanding of this unique city, and also provide a behind-the-scenes examination of the political life and governmental actions that make each day in Washington, D.C. a must-visit experience!
