WJR Weekend Wonders – Washington, DC

WJR is excited to announce our new Weekend Wonders trip series, designed to show you iconic American cities on long weekend getaways. The inaugural trip in the series will be to our nations capital!

We’ll see all of the iconic sites, learn lots of history and, of course, enjoy some good food, all in the company of fellow WJR listeners. It’s going to be a blast. But hurry – space is limited!

I was truly impressed with the top notch service, organization and leadership of Cruise & Tour. Our guide Charlie Crull was always available to help and guide us. Not only did he do a great job, but he was fun and it was nice to get to know him along with others we met.
