Washington DC: 2009 DC Inauguration 32 2
Presidential Inauguration
 
 
 

 

The Inauguration of the President of the United States is one of the great exhibitions of our American Democracy. We may take it for granted today, but in the course of history it is relatively new and rare that a world leader of such magnitude is selected and empowered by the people, and not by might or birthright. The peaceful transfer of power is one of our great traditions. Even though your trip will likely be planned before the results of the presidential election, regardless of “who” is sworn in, the event itself is part of an epic legacy, and it will be an unforgettable experience to stand along side a million fellow citizens on the National Mall to witness the Swearing-In Ceremony, Inaugural Parade and other events in Washington, DC.

 
Our trip is organized and priced such that Families, Students, Friends or Individuals can come and form an efficient touring group with other like-minded travelers in order to maximize their experience in conjunction with our guidance and expertise. If you are a teacher that is thinking about bringing a group of students, please contact us about customizing your own itinerary and pricing to your goals and desires.  In either case, let us help you plan your trip and navigate the logistics of transportation, meals, hotels, and touring during this potentially chaotic celebration. The ceremony itself is the “big event” that people come for, but all the sites of Washington DC are there to explore as well.  Contact us if you are also interested in extending your tour in days to take in other sites and cities such as New York City, Philadelphia, Jamestown/Williamsburg & Monticello.
