There is no place like Washington D.C. for American politics, history and culture. The wide open spaces around the nation’s capital are alive with color when the cherry blossoms bloom during springtime. And any time of the year is a good time to tour the Smithsonian Museum, the White House and the U.S. Capitol Building for fresh insights into our art and history.
Beyond its immediate national treasures, Washington D.C.’s central location provides a convenient gateway to begin private student group tours of the northeastern section of the country. The favorite destination out of Washington is New York City. Student trip to the “Big Apple” will include visits to the Empire State Building, Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Times Square, Central Park, the Brooklyn Bridge, and other iconic land marks. Skyscrapers, Broadway plays, art museums, sporting events, shopping at the fashion centers of Fifth Avenue and visiting the World Trade Center Memorial near Wall Street are additional choices student groups can consider.
While in New York, you can also venture to Niagara Falls on the border between New York and Canada for a memorable ride on the “Maid of the Mist” at the falls. Another popular combination with Washington and New York is Philadelphia, the cradle of liberty and home of such historic artifacts as the Liberty Bell. Don’t miss Independence Hall, where the U.S. Constitution and the Declaration of Independence were created. No visit to Philadelphia would be complete without visiting Pennsylvania Dutch country and Amish Village.
