      About this Washington DC tour

      If you think D.C. is dramatic by daytime, wait until you see it at night.  The sight of the most iconic monuments lit up makes the city seem so much more remarkable! Abe Lincoln appears all the more real when bathed in light against the darkness of the night. 

      The reflection cast by the Jefferson Memorial on the Tidal Basin is almost dream-like. He too seems poised to jump off his pedestal and disappear into the night. Perhaps he would go off to see the White House – the one he lived in was burned down by the British in 1812. At the Martin Luther King Memorial, the slain civil rights leader emerges from marble, bathed in golden light. Even the stark straight lines of the Washington Monument take on new character at night, a white arrow in the reflecting pool directing Lincoln back to his big chair.

      Making mattress sales nearly impossible

      Partisan politics is nothing new in this town. Consider the battle that raged over the monument to the first president. Congress authorized the memorial soon after Washington died in 1799. But two years later, Jeffersonian Republicans took Congress and reversed that decision; the president who had warned against political parties was by then a symbol of the opposition Federalists. The Jeffersonians even blocked the celebration of his birthday.
