Start the day with a quick stop at the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial and then head to one of the most unique and historic buildings in the city: The National Building Museum. Constructed in the late 19th Century as the headquarters of the U.S. Pension Bureau it has provided a large, elegant space for Presidential Inaugural Balls since 1885, and continues to do so today. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1969, and in 1985, it became the National Building Museum, dedicated to American achievements and developments in the building arts. For lunch, enjoy a fall stroll through Washington, DC's re-established wharf district. Enjoy beautiful views of the water, wonderful new restaurants, and visit one of the most exciting neighborhoods in our Nation's Capital. After lunch and some afternoon exploration on your own, we’ll board the bus and head to a new memorial that will be a surprise. We’re pretty sure you have not seen it yet. During our trip, Marsha Adelson will provide commentary before we arrive at each stop. This tour involves moderate walking, some steps, and moderate standing spread throughout the tour. Lunch is on your own with time to explore. We will use the FCC bus. No refunds after close of business on 9/15.
