If you haven’t been to Mount Vernon since the 2006 opening of the Ford Orientation Center and the Donald W.

Discover the real George Washington with a Hollywood-produced action adventure movie, interactive exhibits, an immersive Revolutionary War “snow” experience, more than 1,000 artifacts, original films, and life-size models of Washington created from a forensic investigation! Visitors may also tour the restored Mansion, its outbuildings, and 50 spacious acres of gardens and grounds, which include the tombs of George and Martha Washington, a memorial to the slaves who worked at Mount Vernon, and a four-acre working farm. And of course there’s the gorgeous view of the Potomac River that can be enjoyed from one of several Windsor chairs on Washington’s piazza! The Gardens of Mount Vernon. George Washington had a green thumb, a trait often lost in deference to his achievements on the battlefield and in politics. In fact, while serving in the Revolutionary War and as the first president of the United States, Washington’s mind – and letters home – frequently turned to Mount Vernon and his ideas for landscape design. His carefully planned gardens featuring unusual 18th-century flowers have been expertly maintained and are on display for visitors.

Enjoy lunch (on your own) today at the Food Court at Mount Vernon. Tour Gunston Hall, the plantation and home of George Mason, author of the Bills of Rights, Statesman and Political thinker. Gunston Hall is famous for its architectural beauty virtually unchanged from the days when his good friend George Washington visited here. The Garden Club of Virginia restored the gardens in 1949-53 around Mason’s original boxwood and is now assisting the site in research to provide additional insight into George Mason’s 18th century garden.

From Neanderthals, ancient civilizations, to life teeming in the planet’s oceans and the coexistence of all creatures on terra firma; it’s all here.

The National Gallery of Art houses an outstanding collection of masterpieces that trace the development of Western art from the Middle Ages to the present. The original West Building concentrates primarily on European works from the 13th century, while its contemporary counterpart, the East Building, highlights works of modern artists.

Visit the National Air & Space Museum. Experience the history of flight at one of the world’s most visited museum, from the plane flown by the Wright brothers to the Apollo 11 command module. Features an incredible collection of aviation and space technology treasures.

From the American Southwest, Hawaii, Canada, South and Central America you will feel the spirit of these native people.

The Freer Gallery boast one of the finest museum collections of Chinese art outside of China, with over ten thousand objects dating from Neolithic times(ca. 700-ca.2000 B.C.E.) to the present.

From 1892 to 1924, Ellis Island was America's largest and most active immigration station, where over 12 million immigrants were processed. On average, the inspection process took approximately 3-7 hours. For the vast majority of immigrants, Ellis Island truly was an "Island of Hope" - the first stop on their way to new opportunities and experiences in America. For the rest, it became the "Island of Tears" - a place where families were separated and individuals were denied entry into this country.

The museum tells the moving tales of the 12 million immigrants who entered America through the golden door of Ellis Island. Today, the descendants of those immigrants account for almost half of the American people. The 45-minute Audio Tour invites visitors to relive the immigrant experience as if they were the "new arrival" and is ideal for individuals with limited time. Museum Highlights include: The museum's self-guided exhibits chronicle Ellis Island's role in immigration history and include artifacts, photographs, prints, videos, interactive displays, oral histories, and temporary exhibits, The American Family Immigration History Center, The American Immigrant Wall of Honor, Journeys: The Peopling of America Center (1550 – 1890), The American Flag of Faces, Award-winning film documentary "Island of Hope, Island of Tears".

Then at your leisure you can take the ferry to Liberty Island to see the Statue of Liberty. The Statue of Liberty Enlightening the World was a gift of friendship from the people of France to the United States and is a universal symbol of freedom and democracy. The Statue of Liberty was dedicated on October 28, 1886, designated as a National Monument in 1924 and restored for her centennial on July 4, 1986.

You will be asked to take the 6:00pm ferry to Liberty State Park, NJ so that we may make a 6:15pm departure home. We will make a dinner stop (on your own) along the way.

In this hilarious comedic romp, four friends have sworn to keep the promise they made on the night of their Senior Prom: to be in each other's weddings…no matter what. More than thirty years later, these Southern friends-for-life are still making "the long walk" for each other, determined to honor that vow. ALWAYS A BRIDESMAID is the rollicking tale of four loyal and determined women who definitively answer the question, "Just how far are you willing to go to keep a promise to a friend?" If you've ever elbowed a stranger out of the way to catch a bride's bouquet, seriously questioned the mental stability of the duo saying "I do" or been forced to wear the world's ugliest bridesmaid dress, this deliriously funny JONES HOPE WOOTEN COMEDY is definitely for you…and your dearly beloved!

Their Dinner Theater is unique...enjoy a great buffet--a wonderful play and a fun-filled cabaret. Their extensive, hearty buffet does not skimp on quality or selection. You will not be disappointed! Their intimate theater is just a short stroll from the dining room. There you will have reserved seating to enjoy some of the finest entertainment available. Professional actors will delight you with a wonderful play worthy of Broadway. Then it is back to your original table where the dining room has been transformed into a delightful Cabaret where their Company Members continue to entertain you with songs and laughter. A great day out! Just as you would expect it to be!

Newport Mansions at Christmas Time
Location: Newport, RI Price: $67.00
Date(s): 12/19/2015 Time:
The glitter of gold and the sparkle of silver will dazzle you as you tour these magnificent mansions. Thousands of poinsettia plants, spectacular evergreens, trees, wreaths and fresh flowers and 19th century style ornaments turn the houses and their grounds into a Christmas wonderland. Our first mansion will be the Marble House. For an American house, it was unparalleled in design and opulence when it was built. Its temple-front portico has been compared to that of the White House. It was a social landmark that helped spark the transformation of Newport from a relatively relaxed summer colony of wooden houses to the now legendary resort of opulent stone palaces. The 50-room mansion required a staff of 36 servants, including butlers, maids, coachmen, and footmen.

We will then take a lunch break and bring you to the downtown waterfront where there are several delicious restaurants to eat (on your own) before continuing the tour. On our way to the next mansion we will first enjoy the infamous “Ocean Driver”. This scenic drive, also known as Ten Mile Drive, encompasses most of the southern coastline of Aquidneck Island. This area used to be farmland, but today is one of the most popular Newport RI attractions. Once you're out here, it's very easy to see why. It consists of houses on large lots that overlook the beaches and ocean. It was a favorite picnicking spot of the wealthy summer residents of the mansions on nearby Bellevue Avenue in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. I never cease to be amazed at the beauty of all the homes out there, and the breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean they enjoy.

Finally we will end at the Breakers Mansion; a 70-room mansion that has approximately 65,000 sq. ft. of living space. The Breakers is the grandest of Newport's summer "cottages" and a symbol of the Vanderbilt family's social and financial preeminence in turn of the century America.
