An Enchanted Evening In The Nation’s Capital

Often, certain places are categorized as “a city like no other in this country.” In the case of Washington DC, the claim is especially true and well-deserved. Everywhere you look you’ll find granite and marble fashioned into some of America’s most iconic buildings and landmarks. These structures are imbued with the events of the past that have molded and formed this country into the bastion of liberty and democracy known the world over. When evening comes, this city resonates with a power you can only feel here. Abraham Lincoln, sitting stoically overlooking the National Mall comes alive at the memorial of his namesake.

With stops at the Iwo Jima Marine Corps Memorial, FDR, Lincoln, Vietnam Veterans, Korean War,  and Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorials, there’s a whole other beauty and majesty that DC projects by the light of the moon and this tour captures every sparkling moment.

American History Lives In Washington DC

Washington DC not only serves as the very foundation of the power structure of the United States where it’s laws are written and where the interests of all 50 states are represented, but it is also a living chronology of the trials, tribulations, successes, and milestones that define this republic. Pierre L’Enfant, George Washington’s trusted city planner, converted this district of forests and marshes into the public squares and wide avenues you see today. A triumvirate of this nation’s most important documents, the Constitution, Bill of Rights, and the Declaration of Independence are all kept here in the rotunda of the National Archives for all to see. There are remembrances of all sorts commemorating wars, patriots, and landmark events and even the museums and galleries represent the very best in American innovation. Whether a visitor from another country or a U.S. citizen, a trip through the Nation’s Capital is a trip worth taking!


Whether you’re looking to cut a rug listening to some cracklin’ good rockabilly or finding just the right armadillo boots to give your dad for his birthday, these great spots have received our stamp of approval.
