Highlights
Heritage of America

Philadelphia
Another city along America's Independence Trail is Philadelphia. At the heart of America's fight for freedom is Independence Hall. Site of the initial meetings and the signing of the Declaration of Independence, Independence Hall today is a highlight of any tour. Other notable tourist attractions in the "City of Brotherly Love" are the Liberty Bell, the Rocky steps at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Valley Forge National Park and the Betsy Ross house.

Gettysburg
The Battle of Gettysburg was a turning point in the American Civil War and its bloodiest battle. Inspiration for Abraham Lincoln's famous Gettysburg Address, this battlefield is today a National Military Park with a museum and visitor center. A visit here is enhanced by information found in its well known bookstore.

Harpers Ferry
This is a true journey back to the 1800s. At the easternmost point of West Virginia, surrounded by Harpers Ferry National Park, the town of Harpers Ferry borders the Potomac and Shenandoah Rivers – a living history town straight out of the 19th century. The midpoint of the Appalachian Trail and a designated National Historic District, Harpers Ferry’s architecture reflects the town’s vital role as a historic transportation hub and a strategic location during the Civil War. As the eastern gateway to West Virginia, Harpers Ferry beckons visitors from all over, offering them a journey back into history and historical Harpers Ferry again and again.

Shenandoah National Park
The establishment of Shenandoah National Park in 1935 was the culmination of an effort that took almost four decades. Shenandoah National Park lies astride a beautiful section of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Skyline Drive, a 105-mile road that winds along the crest of the mountains through the length of the park, provides vistas of the spectacular landscape to the east and west. The park holds more than 500 miles of trails and is home to many animals including deer, black bears and wild turkeys which flourish among the rich growth of an oak-hickory forest.

Charlottesville
It is a charming historic town that lies in the foothills of the picturesque Blue Ridge Mountains. This town has many treasures, you will find an array of boutiques, antique shops, museums and renowned wineries.

Monticello
Monticello is the Italian named home of the third president of the United States, Thomas Jefferson. Author of the Declaration of Independence, Jefferson was an architect who designed his house, making constant changes over a span of 40 years. Surrounding the mansion was land used as a fruit and vegetable garden as well as a botanic laboratory of plants from around the world.

Colonial Williamsburg
A 300 acre historic site with a recreated American colonial village, Colonial Williamsburg allows visitors a sojourn in the 18th century. Costumed interpreters present the struggles of revolutionists, ordinary craftspeople and slaves as they go about their daily lives. Stop in at the basket maker or blacksmith, hear the fifes and drums perform or listen in as colonists debate separation from Great Britain.

Arlington National Cemetery
Comprised of land once developed by the grandson of George Washington, Arlington went on to become the home of Confederate General Robert E. Lee and later a village for the training and assistance of newly freed slaves. The first military burial took place here in 1864. Today Arlington's white headstones and monuments mark the final resting place of American heroes.

Washington, D.C.
With its status as the Nation's Capital, Washington, D.C. sits along the Potomac River on land donated by the states of Virginia and Maryland. Home to all three branches of government, DC also has numerous museums, Arlington Cemetery and The National Mall. An open-air park between the Jefferson Memorial and the Capital Building, the mall is dotted with memorials such as the WWII and Lincoln Memorial reflecting pool.

Smithsonian Institution
The largest museum and research complex in the world, the Smithsonian consists of 19 museums/galleries and the National Zoo. British scientist James Smithson left his estate to the US with the express purpose of founding a center of knowledge in Washington, D.C. Today some of the more popular museums include the Air & Space, American History and Natural History museums.

Mount Vernon
Situated on the banks of the Potomac River, Mount Vernon was the home of 1st U.S. President, George Washington. Explore 21 beautiful rooms spread out over the mansion's three floors or see the outbuildings that housed the important trades which helped to sustain the property. Washington redesigned the grounds of the estate to not only grow provisions but reflect a naturalistic 18th-century landscape.
