Memorable Moment
The Arboretum, Where Science Meets Beauty, was founded in 1927 by an Act of Congress. Now for the first-time ever the garden gates are open for private events.
"What a night! We loved it and thought it was a spectacular place- I couldn't believe we were still in DC!"
Bash Buzz
The Capitol Columns will transport your group from modern day Washington to Ancient Greece, the birthplace of democracy.
