Dr. King Dedication Memorial in D.C.

On August 28, 2011 Washington D.C. will be commemorating the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial on the National Mall. Visitors can buy packages that include a stay at the St. Gregory Hotel and Suites with a one-day Metro Pass each day and a reserved section, which is standing room only on August 28 for the National Memorial Dedication Ceremony.

The Dedication promises to be a historic event for the U.S. and around the world, reminiscing Dr. King's timeless beliefs to resonate with people of all lands. The ceremony will be a culmination of a week of events, inspired by the establishment of a permanent honor to one of our nation's greatest citizen leaders.

The National Mall Segway Tour offers a fantastic orientation for first-time visitors and beautiful sites for veterans and locals. Tour highlights include The White House, The Capitol Building, Smithsonian Castle Building, Vietnam Memorial, and many more.
Another option for touring features Old Town Trolley Tours, where visitors can hop on-hop off over 16 different locations as long as you present your tour voucher. The first day is paid for, but the second day ride is free. The package requires a two night minimum stay, which is non-refundable and non-transferable.
