Overview
See Washington, D.C., monuments and landmarks on an evening tour by electric vehicle. Exploring D.C. after dark means seeing the landmarks dramatically lit, and the quiet, open-sided vehicle gives unobstructed views and great photo opportunities. From the Jefferson Memorial to the White House, and Capitol Hill, and a moving series of war memorials, you’ll see some of D.C.’s top sites with historic context from a guide.

Continue to the National World War I and National World War II memorials, the Korean War Veterans Memorial, and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial on your way to the White House, which is notably photogenic after dark.
