Three Day Washington DC School Trip

Posted by Zane Anderson on September 24, 2020

Three day Washington DC field trip Itinerary


Washington, D.C. has always been a hotspot for student travelers. After all, it is the capital of America and after learning about American history in a classroom for years students on an educational field trip can finally experience it for themselves. Some points of interest are absolute must do’s while you’re touring the capitol. While others can be added on depending on the interest of the group.  Let me walk you through our three day Washington DC school trip.


Day 1: 


Departure: via motorcoach or airline depending where the group will be traveling from

*Optional add-on boxed lunch or fast food*
