Washington D.C. Student Tours
Welcome to Washington D.C., the seat of America's national government and home of the men and women who shape our nation, including one of the most powerful men on Earth: the President of the United States. Filled with monuments and museums, parks and historical places, Washington travel tours make a great destination for any student travel groups. Even young students can enjoy the sights on Washington travel tours, and students in high school and beyond will love the chance to see the government they have studied in books functioning in reality.
But Washington travel tours aren't just for students of American history and government. Washington D.C. is home to the Smithsonian Museum, which has some of the finest collections of any museum in the country. From art to natural history and beyond, the Smithsonian can offer some very specialized educational opportunities. Washington D.C. is also known for its architecture, which can easily be worked in to any Washington travel tours. Students will be inspired by the structures of monuments and public buildings, in addition to older construction in the elegant Georgetown district.
No Washington D.C. student travel experience is complete without a thorough tour of the monuments. Washington travel tours typically visit all the major monuments: the Washington monument, the Lincoln Memorial, the Jefferson Memorial, the National World War II Memorial, the Vietnam Veterans' Memorial, the Korean War Veterans' Memorial, and the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial. In addition, most Washington travel tours visiting during early May will want to look the cherry blossoms which surround the tidal basin, a large lake that sits just in front of the Jefferson Memorial. These beautiful trees were a gift from Japan, and bloom a stunning pink that has inspired the Cherry Blossom Festival held in D.C. annually.
In addition to the architecture and the history, Washington travel tours can also explore the cultural richness that the Nation's Capital has to offer. There are many theatres in the city, ranging from local playhouses to big venues like the National Theater, which attract top tours and performers. The Verizon Center is also located within the city, hosting the Washington Wizards and Mystics basketball games, the National Capitals ice hockey games, and engagements by some of the most popular entertainers. In addition, the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts is located in D.C., and many Washington travel tours will include a performance by the National Symphony Orchestra, the Washington National Opera, or the Washington Ballet.
Of course, the centerpiece of almost all Washington travel tours are the government buildings and national history that goes along with them.
