Founded in 1790 as the new capital city for our new nation, the District of Columbia today boasts a wealth of fine museums, stunning monuments, and moving memorials.
Washington D.C. has it all: historic artifacts like the Declaration of Independence, time-honored traditions like the Changing of the Guard at Arlington National Cemetery, iconic sites like the Lincoln Memorial and even panda bears at the National Zoo!
Whether you are studying history, art, science, or anything in between, a visit to our nation’s capital is an educational experience no young American should miss!
Itinerary is subject to change.
Today, we depart FLL Airport to reach the nation’s capital and meet our ClassTrip.com Tour Director. 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 Memorial and Washington Monument 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 home 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.
