Washington DC Field Trip

 Experience Washington DC for an action-packed day of touring with our customized field trip program. Your group can see and experience a lot in one day and we can help you make that happen.
 

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. 

The National Archives is just west of the Capitol a few blocks and contains the Declaration of Independence and other important historical documents and is very important to see. Finally, the White House is extremely popular, but it does require an appointment well in advance of your visit. 

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.
