One of my most memorable travel moments was on spring break when I took a tour to Washington DC. I was staying in Williamsburg and the resort I was at was running a day long tour to DC that included breakfast, lunch, dinner, round trip transportation, and all admissions to the DC area attractions the tour was going to. The price for the tour was a low 60$.
We saw sooo many memorials and national monuments and museums. It was a day crammed with awe inspiring moments, tearful memories, and national pride. We visited the capital building, the national mall and the Smithsonian, Vietnam and Korean War memorials, FDR memorial, Lincoln memorial, Arlington Cemetery, and more. My only regret about this wonderful tour was that it was only one day. I am really looking forward to getting back and spending some more time in our nation's capital and visiting the new WWII memorial. It was one of the best sightseeing tours I have ever done.
With the price of gas these days staying close can be a great low cost option. There are always hidden gems close to home that would make a great getaway. I know for me I am always looking for new things to do in Chicago. I like to head out on the weekends and take little "mini vactions," and things close to home work the best.
