There are many must-see attractions to include on your guided tour of D.C., including the National Cathedral. As you walk inside this massive building, your eyes will inevitably be drawn to the giant, towering columns that support the 300 million tons of Indiana limestone that make up the cathedral. Before you leave, visit the George Washington Bay, which you can catch a glimpse of when you watch the accompanying video.

You’ll see the masterfully sculpted likeness of George Washington. Above his head are several symbols of the Freemasons. Take a few minutes to enjoy the beautiful stained glass window above the statue’s right shoulder. It symbolizes America’s beginnings.

The National Cathedral is one of the many American treasures you can see during a day trip to Washington, D.C. Haymarket Transportation Inc., available at 301-778-2007, offers world-class D.C. guided tours.
