United States history is a rich, complex subject full of quill pens, flag revisions, and ever-changing definitions of fashionable hairdos. Visit two of the sites where this intricate story was written with today's Groupon: for $149, you get a guided two-day trip to Washington, D.C. and Philadelphia from Get America Tours (a $299 value).
The professional guides at Get America Tours lead sightseeing jaunts through some of the country's most exciting, history-packed cities. Hop aboard a bus for the two-day trek, which departs from Hotel Pennsylvania in New York City. Begin the three-dimensional history lesson at the nation's control panel, where cameras can capture viewings of landmarks such as the Air and Space Museum, the White House, the Vietnam War Memorial, Arlington National Cemetery, and the Lincoln, Jefferson, and Washington Monuments. After catching z's or mischievous bed elves during a one-night hotel stay in a double room in D.C., the coach heads to Philadelphia. Bask in the presence of revered relics such as Independence Hall and the Cheesesteak Monument, or ring the Liberty Bell to summon Benjamin Franklin's ghost to dinner. After a long day of having its wheels go round and round, the bus returns to its original departure location in New York City.
Single travelers will be paired with roommate, or they may pay an additional $50 fee for their own room.
