      About this Washington DC tour

      As our nation's capital, Washington, D.C., is home to the White House, the official residence and workplace of every one of our presidents since 1800. An elegant and entertaining way to get a taste of D.C's presidential history is to take the Odyssey lunch cruise.

      When you pass by the Lincoln Memorial, note its 36 columns, one for each state reunited following the Civil War. No truth to the rumor, though, that Abraham Lincoln's hands in the sculpture spell out "A" and "L" in sign language. The Jefferson Memorial shares a similar Parthenon-inspired design – one that was approved by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. It originally had a plaster cast of the Thomas Jefferson statue, due to wartime restrictions on metal, but was replaced with a more fitting bronze statue after the war.

      The Kennedy Center (quite a cultural treasure), the always-busy Reagan National Airport, and the forest that is Theodore Roosevelt Island are other presidential-themed sights you'll see from your cruise, as is the stirring Arlington National Cemetery, where presidents John F. Kennedy and William Howard Taft, along with 400,000+ service members and others, are buried.

      But not every attraction you'll see is a positive reflection on the presidency. Like the Watergate. This office complex was the scene of the President Nixon-authorized break-in of the headquarters of the Democratic National Committee in 1972. All of the attractions, though, contribute to who we are as Americans. A lunch cruise with a hearty entree of American lore? That's pretty delicious.

      Foxe lady

      One of the sillier scandals in American political took place along the D.C. waterfront. In 1974, park police pulled over Rep. Wilbur Mills, who headed the powerful Ways and Means Committee, for speeding. Both he and his passenger/mistress, a stripper named Fanne Foxe, were apparently liquored up, too. And Foxe jumped into the Tidal Basin to escape the fuzz. The scandal killed Mills' career, but made Foxe famous.
