Kennedy Memorial Center for the Performing Arts.  The 350-voice choir and the U.S. Air Force Orchestra will feature a patriotic repertoire.  An exclusive private dinner inside the National Museum of the Marine Corps with a Guest Speaker will complete the day.  (Breakfast & Dinner)

 Day 3 – Depart the hotel after breakfast and visit the National Law Enforcement Museum.  This 57,000 square foot museum has 3 stories underground and more than 21,000 artifacts from every era of law enforcement.  Visit the United States Navy Memorial on Pennsylvania Avenue NW en route to your reserved seats for The National Memorial Day Parade.  The largest of its kind in the United States is held along Constitution Avenue and recognizing the story of American honor and sacrifice from across the generations.  A lunch will be provided.  Tonight an exclusive pre-opening tour, movie and dinner will be at the National Museum of the United States Army at Fort Belvoir.  This will NOT BE OPEN TO THE PUBLIC until the Fall of 2020!  This museum will celebrate over 240 years of Army history and honor our nation’s Soldiers--- regular, Reserves and National Guard. (Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner)

 Day 4 – Following breakfast and hotel check-out you will travel to Arlington National Cemetery, America’s shrine to valor and sacrifice.  Tram tickets will be provided, stopping at 6 stops throughout the Memorial.  Changing of the Guard is every hour and the half hour and is an elaborate ritual.  Due to tram capacity groups may not be able to stay together, waits may be long and trams may be full.  We recommend stopping only at the Kennedy gravesite and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.  Departure from Arlington is anticipated in the early afternoon with a return time in Rochester approximately 10:00 pm.  (Breakfast)
