Washington, D.C. is more than just the nation’s capital; it's home to more than 150 embassies, chancelleries, and diplomatic residences where colors, cultures and languages come together to create a unique, friendly, and diverse atmosphere. This was the first planned city in America, designed by Pierre L'Enfant in the later 1700's, and was essentially carved out of swampland. Today, Washington is a diverse showcase of all that is best about America. Whether this is your first trip to Washington or you are a frequent visitor, the area is an exciting potpourri of interesting things to see and do. Sign up today to join in the fun on our tour to the nation’s capital!
