This holiday to America combines the iconic monuments and history of Washington DC with the thrills and spills of Orlando.
Washington DC contains some of the world’s most iconic landmarks. The tree-lined strip known as the National Mall is the central hub of tourist activity in the city. It contains many of Washington DC’s most famous attractions and is a great place to start exploring. The National Mall is home to the Washington Monument; the Lincoln, Roosevelt and Jefferson Memorials; the Capitol building and of course, the White House. From here you can also visit the world-renowned museums of the Smithsonian Institute and the National Gallery of Art. Families will love the National Zoo, which is free to enter, and Washington’s newest museum, the International Spy Museum.
No visit to Orlando is really complete without a visit to one of its famous theme parks. There are so many to choose from. Go behind the scenes and get involved in some movie action, explore Diagon Alley at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios or be one of the first to experience Universal’s new water theme park Volcano Bay, opening in early summer 2017. Why not try one of the 50 rides at one of Orlando’s newest major theme parks LegoLand? Or visit the iconic turreted Cinderella Castle that stands in the centre of Disney’s Magic Kingdom or marvel at the magnificent ocean animals at SeaWorld, there are so many theme park adventures to choose from.
