You will get to know the heart of the US government. In particular, you'll visit the world-famous White House, where the President resides. The Capitol and the Senate, where political representatives have been meeting for more than two centuries.
However, not all the monuments are political, but you will also visit poignant locations. These include the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, Arlington National Cemetery, where John F.
