On a class trip to D.C., there is no place which inspires more humility and awe than the burial ground at Arlington National Cemetery (ANC).

The Capitol building is rightly called the temple of American democracy. The home of the legislative branch offers an excellent guided tour and its steps are the perfect backdrop for group photos and selfies.
For some, it’s the highlight of their entire school trip to Washington, D.C.
