Washington, D.C. School Trip Tips

Are you a trip planner? Are you planning a trip to Washington, D.C? Need some trip tips? You are in the right place for all of above! Many middle and high school student groups plan their school trips to Washington, D.C. Our trained travel specialists offer many trip tips during the planning process. Below you will find a few trip tips we'd love to share with you! 

1. "Off-Season" Travel 

Many middle and high school student groups plan their Washington, D.C. trips for the spring months. We consider the spring as one of the busiest times in the capital city! 

We suggest school groups to consider traveling in late February- early March or September-November. With cooler weather and less traffic, this is optimal for a trip organizer who is looking for a "low stress" educational experience. 

At GO Educational Tours, we believe there are many benefits of planning your class trip during the "off-season" months. Our travel specialists are able to maximize your groups time, allowing your group to see more! (I.e less lines at the Capitol, less people at museums and memorials!)

This is one of our best Washington, D.C. school trip tips. We highly suggest to start planning school trips as early as possible. 

GO Educational Tours offers free enrollment on our online portal system. This allows the trip organizer to see the amount of participants interested before commiting to the trip with deposits! The portal also offers trip organizers with a view of participants and payments made.
