Your half-day excursion begins as you board your luxury motor coach for a day filled with American history dating back to the American Colonial Era. Depart the Nation's Capital for the State of Virginia, where you will begin your adventure with a visit to Old Town Alexandria! Dating back to the early 1700s, Old Town Alexandria played a significant role in early American history. However, it is mostly known for being the adopted hometown of America's first President, George Washington. Your guide will provide an in-depth overview of the town's historical facts, show you its cobblestoned streets lined with historic buildings.
