I’m so thrilled to be starting a new series for our readers here on the blog. I’ll be featuring various cities around the world and what they have to offer for exciting student travel! First up Washington D.C.! Keep reading if you’d like to see why this city is great for educational student travel. 🙂

For teachers and students, the year 2013 marks an exciting time to visit America’s capitol on an educational student tour as it celebrates an Inauguration year. There is not a more idyllic moment to visit as students and teachers can connect with our nation’s history and culture. With a class trip to Washington, D.C., students will visit notable sites where they will learn firsthand about America and its founding fathers. On an educational student tour, one of the many highlights students will see and experience are the historic Capitol Building, Supreme Court, and the Library of Congress. Inside these buildings is where the inner workings of America’s seat of power lie. Students and educators will trace the steps of our founding fathers as they learn about America’s presidential past and present, and they will marvel at the majesty of the modern-day wonders such as the Smithsonian Institute and the Air and Space Museum.

Other culturally rich sites to visit include the Washington Monument, Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Ford’s Theatre, Arlington National Cemetery, the National Mall, and the Bureau of Engraving and Printing. Exploring these gems of the nation’s capital on an educational student tour makes for an amazing experience. It’s also great because students will appreciate and learn more about America’s history when seeing these sites in person. So what are you waiting for?!
