Built in the 1750’s and nearly 500 acres to see along the Potomac River, it really is a trip worth making:
The next event took place at the Newseum, the interactive news and journalism museum just a couple of blocks from the United States Capital. There are many displays that are interesting, but just as many that are emotional.

The corporate event concluded with a reception and private concert by the incredibly talented (and gorgeous) Leann Rimes:
