Marching Through Virginia!
Join us for a "military march" through the Commonwealth of Virginia, one of the original 13 colonies. Explore its historical importance to our country and experience patriotism firsthand as we travel inland to the coast!
Day 1: Our first day is spent driving east with an overnight stay in Pennsylvania.
Day 2: Today, we visit Mount Vernon, the historic centerpiece of George Washington's 3,000 acre estate. Built in 1735 along the Potomac River, view the mansion room by room along with the lush gardens and grounds. This evening, we overnight in Richmond, Virginia.
Day 3: This morning, enjoy a tour of Richmond, the capital of Virginia and one of America's oldest cities. It was here at St. John's Church in 1775, that Patrick Henry, a U.S. Founding Father, famously declared "Give me liberty or give me death" leading to the Revolutionary War. We'll also visit the American Civil War Museum, dedicated to the history of the Civil War.
Day 4: Today, travel to coastal Norfolk and visit the Nauticus Center to explore this naval, economic, and nautical power of the sea and home to the USS Wisconsin. Enjoy a dolphin cruise on an Inlet of the Atlantic and learn all about coastal Virginia Beach. This evening, we overnight at an Oceanfront Property in Virginia Beach.
Day 5: Visit the Norfolk Naval Station, home to more than 70 ships of the Atlantic fleet and the world's largest naval installation. Attend "Hullabaloo," a pre-Tattoo event. Later, take your reserved seats for the Virginia International Tattoo, a musical and military wonder.
Days 6 & 7: We bid farewell to the Atlantic Coast and begin our travel west with a layover in Pennsylvania before returning home, all the while enjoying surprise stops along the way.
