HISTORIC TRAILS & BLUE RIDGE MOUNTAINS

Tour 8720  WASHINGTON D.C.  WASHINGTON D.C.
Deal
On this incredible holiday, you’ll visit historical battlefields and Colonial towns, and will marvel at the scenic wonders of Kentucky Bluegrass Country and the spectacular Blue Ridge and Great Smoky Mountains. Start in Washington DC, the U.S. capital and a sightseeing treasure trove, where highlights include the well-known sites, such as Arlington National Cemetery and the Korean and Vietnam War Memorials. Afterward, cross the Mason-Dixon Line into Pennsylvania for a visit to the hallowed Gettysburg Battlefield, site of the decisive Civil War campaign and where Abraham Lincoln delivered his immortal Gettysburg Address in November 1863. On your way to Shenandoah National Park, stop at Harpers Ferry, where in 1859 John Brown made his ill-fated raid on the U.S. Arsenal. En route to Shenandoah, crest the Blue Ridge Mountains for magnificent vistas of the Shenandoah Valley before overnighting in Shenandoah National Park. As you cross into Kentucky, the scenery changes to green pastures, white-board fences, and the columned estates of Kentucky Bluegrass Country, backdrop for the movie Seabiscuit. Arrive in Lexington, the heart of the bluegrass, and visit the Kentucky Horse Park, from where legends like Man o’ War and Secretariat conquered the racing world. Enjoy some time on Bluegrass Parkway and stop at Sinking Spring Farm, a one-room cabin where the nation’s 16th president, Abraham Lincoln, was born. In Bardstown, visit the fourth-largest Civil War Museum in the U.S. Of course, a trip to this area would not be complete without visiting a true working bourbon distillery, and learn about the production of the very finest Kentucky straight bourbon, for which Kentucky is famous. Enjoy the breathtaking scenery as you drive right through the center of the Smokies along the spectacular Newfound Gap Road, peaking at 5,046 feet. Into North Carolina and a stop at the 7,500-acre grounds of the Biltmore Estate, built by George Vanderbilt, grandson of railroad magnate Cornelius Vanderbilt. Another highlight is the graceful home of the third U.S. president, Thomas Jefferson. His Monticello estate is the only house in the U.S. that is on the UNESCO World Heritage list of international treasures. Finally, visit Jamestown Settlement and learn about the first permanent English settlement in the New World; Colonial Williamsburg, where American heritage is proudly preserved; and Mount Vernon on the banks of the Potomac River, beloved home of George and Martha Washington.
