Washington DC Monuments by Moonlight Electric Cart Tour

Washington Dc Monuments By Moonlight Electric Cart Tour

Take in Washington DC’s landmarks at night, including the White House, US Capitol Building and Washington Monument, on a guided tour via an electric cart. Cruise around Capitol Hill and get great views of important monuments illuminated by floodlights, such as the Lincoln Memorial, Jefferson Memorial, Vietnam Veterans Memorial, Library of Congress, Supreme Court, Smithsonian and more. Two open-air, eco-friendly vehicles each seat five people plus a guide, ensuring a more personalized small-group experience.

Meet your guide outside the Smithsonian metro station and then hop into your electric cart, a comfortable and efficient way to get around the downtown area. Each electric cart has room for five passengers plus a guide, so your small group of 10 travels in two carts.

Start at the Smithsonian complex and move through the major monument areas, marveling at the dramatic effect of the floodlights on the stately architecture. Admire the Jefferson Memorial and Martin Luther King Memorial, bathed in indirect light from the Tidal Basin. Take in the FDR Memorial with its cascading waterfalls and sculptures depicting President Roosevelt’s four terms. See the illuminated Washington Monument and Lincoln Memorial. Then visit the WWI and WWII Memorials, the Korean War Veterans Memorial and, finally, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.

Continue past Washington DC’s most famous address: the White House. Keep your camera ready to test out your night photography skills as you stop at the sites.

Next, zip around Capitol Hill, historically DC’s biggest residential neighborhood. Pass the US Capitol Building, the Supreme Court and the Library of Congress complex, and hear the history of the sites from your expert guide.

Your eco-friendly, open-air electric cart allows you to enjoy fresh air and great views as you tour the city. Your guide also points out festivals, exhibits, demonstrations or special events that may be occurring in this lively city.

After a 2-hour tour, you'll return to the Smithsonian complex where your tour ends.
