2015 Garden Tour – Washington, D.C.
Plan on two nights near the nation’s capital so there will be time to visit scenic gardens and enjoy some free time to explore. Destinations include the U.S. National Arboretum, the U.S. Botanic Garden, and the Constitution Gardens. We will also visit smaller venues and historic Virginia sites.
