Seeing DC monuments at night is a special experience that not many visitors to the city try out. The various landmarks look brilliant while illuminated and with this tour you’ll see so many of them.

There are stops on the tour at which visitors can stop off and take a look around, such as the impassive Lincoln Memorial and the inspiring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial. The Lincoln Memorial is one of the best sights to see in the city, as it’s a humbling homage to the 16th president. The architecture of the memorial is astounding and looking upon it is sure to inspire awe in any visitor.
War memorials also take pride of place in the city, with the Korean War Memorials, of which look especially striking in the dusk. The Korean War Memorial is made up of 19 life-size soldier figures and, at night, these are illuminated by spotlights. It makes for a wonderful trip for those interested in military history or sculptures. A view from the coach at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall is also a humbling experience and with this tour you can spend time truly appreciating it. There are almost 60,000 names on this war memorial of those who were killed or missing during the conflict.

These memorials are just a couple of the most famous in the city and they are truly breathtaking at dusk.
