Washington DC Field Trip
For most groups who have limited time to see DC in a single day, there are two or three main focuses. The Federal Government Buildings are close to each other and are easy to visit. The U.S. Capitol Building is the most-visited and offers a lot of history for students to learn. The U.S. Supreme Court also has a long and storied history and is located just to the east of the Capitol Building. The Library of Congress is just south of the Supreme Court and is very beautiful inside.
Other popular attractions include the monuments & memorials, Mt. Vernon, or Arlington National Cemetery. All of these locations could easily take at least a half day to visit.
