DC & Philadelphia Class Trip

American history and government will come alive like never before for you and your class when you visit DC and Philadelphia.

Historic tour

6 days

5 nights

5 cities

Philadelphia was one of the most important American cities during the colonial and revolutionary periods. Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell mark the city and transport visitors back to the city’s revolutionary past, and the famous Gettysburg battlefield lies a short drive away.

Our nation’s capital, Washington, D.C., contains historical artifacts like the Declaration of Independence, patriotic traditions like the changing of the guard at Arlington National Cemetery, and unique opportunities for learning like those found at the Smithsonian Museums.

By combining Philadelphia and Washington, D.C. your class will gain an even greater insight into and connection to the past, present and future of our nation than it would by visiting just one.

We visit one or more of the Smithsonian Museums, which include the National Museum of American History, the National Museum of Natural History, the National Air and Space Museum, the National Museum of African Art, and the National Museum of the American Indian. We then see the World War II Memorial, dedicated to Americans who served during the Second World War. The Memorial is situated between the Lincoln and Washington Monuments and contains 56 pillars which represent the U.S. states and territories. We visit the Washington Monument and take time for a group photo before moving on to the White House, the residence of the U.S. President since John Adams took up residence there in 1800. We take a night tour of Washington D.C. to include the Lincoln Memorial, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, and the Korean War Veterans Memorial.
