Washington DC Odyssey Dinner Cruise

97 reviews
Date night in DC doesn't get better than this romantic dinner cruise, where you can indulge in a multi-course meal, complete with views of the city. Just hop aboard your ship for a scenic jaunt on the Potomac River. Sit back to enjoy views through the picture windows, take in fresh air from the observation deck, and enjoy dancing to the live, onboard music.

One cannot miss visiting this architectural wonder when visiting the National Mall. It is such a wonderful tribute to the men and women who fought and died during this terribly unnecessary conflict. Thankfully I did not know anyone personally who lost their life in this war.

The Vietnam Veterans Memorial is a powerful tribute to the men in the armed services who lost their lives in a controversial war. It is a simple monument, but it is emotional to see. No one in my family served during Vietnam, but I am touched every time I see it. The most

What a powerful reminder! I have friends on the wall. I went to Korea instead of Nam in 1971. So much pathos at the wall. For those of us who were military it is a tribute for all of us. We remember those who gave all.

In a quiet park like area in Washington DC you'll find a long trench that you can easily walk through, on one side of the trench, the wall of the trench is covered in thousands of names; those who did not return from fighting in the Vietnam war. Beside the names of every
