Historic Sites in Northern Virginia for Student Travel Tours to Washington DCOften when student travel groups decide upon Washington D.C. as their destination, the tour leaders have specific sites in mind for a visit. Many of the sites that student travel groups request the most are just outside Washington D.C., in Northern Virginia. In order to include these historic sites in a student travel tour, advanced planning is required. Usually, I advise educational travel groups to plan one year ahead for trips to the Washington D.C. area. Depending upon the site visited, special advance procedures and directions are required. สล็อตเว็บตรงไม่ผ่านเอเย่นต์ An educational travel company needs to be retained to plan and execute an effective itinerary for Washington D.C. If popular historic or governmental sites are requested, the itinerary will accommodate these sites on one special day, or combine them effectively with other destinations on the student tour. Here is an overview of some of the popular Northern Virginia sites for educational travel groups: Pentagon Tour Washington DC The Pentagon is located just across the Potomac River from Washington D.C. in Arlington, Virginia. Many student travel groups are eager to see the headquarters for high-ranking officers of the U.S. Military and their aides. Because the Pentagon was attacked on September 11th, and it houses critical military personnel, it is a sensitive site. Despite the challenges to security, the U.S. government still provides student travel tours led by a uniformed and trained member of the U.S. Military. This tour has been provided to the public since 1976, and is still used for military personnel. Arlington National Cemetery Washington DC Arlington National Cemetery is another historic site that fascinates and intrigues educational tour groups. Arlington National Cemetery was dedicated as a military cemetery on June 15th 1854. Veterans from all of the wars, both foreign and domestic, are buried here and the gravesites number around 300,000. The National Cemetery is included on the National Register of Historic Places. The park is peaceful and beautiful, and it is a wonderful way for student travel groups to experience this history. Mount Vernon Estate and Gardens Washington DC Mount Vernon, the historic estate of George Washington lies just across the Potomac River from Washington D.C. a mere 16 miles distance from the nation’s capital. Mount Vernon is exquisitely preserved. Student travel groups can walk the property, learn about the architecture and learn about the life of George Washington while vacationing in our nation’s capital. Student travel groups can stay at the Mount Vernon Estate and Gardens, which is a fully functioning 18th century estate and gardens. Student travel groups will be greeted at their doorstep by the incomparable grounds and mansion and can partake in all the activities and site seeing the estate has to offer. Student travel groups can learn even more about George Washington when they visit the Smithsonian American History Museum, the building houses the only portrait of the president-presiding in the free world. The Smithsonian American History Museum offers a dynamic visitor experience in which the museum will showcase select artifacts to showcase George Washington’s impact on the nation and on the world. Schedule a visit to the Smithsonian American History Museum on your student travel tour and help students learn about the development of the United States.
