School Trips to Washington, D.C.

3 Days, 2 Nights

Day 1

Arrival

Meet your on-site coordinator and licensed tour guide.

Quincy Market An entertaining place to start a tour of Boston, this historic market was constructed in 1824 and it is designated a National Historic Land-mark. Open spaces at both the east and west ends of the marketplace are a common venue for various street performers and vendors. Adjacent to the market is Faneuil Hall, which has been a marketplace and a meeting hall since 1743. It was the site of speeches by Samuel Adams, James Otis, and other revolutionaries who encouraged independence from Great Britain.

Museum of Science One of the world's largest science centers and New England's most highly attended cultural institution, the Museum of Science promotes engineering education by bringing science, technology, and mathe-matics alive through its exhibits, programs, and more.

Harvard Square Photo Stop This historic area is home to the oldest and one of the most prestigious universities in America. It also is where George Wash-ington took command of the Continental Army and during the 19th century it was a center of abolitionist activity. Today, it is a gathering place for authors, educators, students, and residents.

Dinner

Freedom Trail You are walking into history with every step along this 2.5 mile tour of Boston. This is one of the only walking tours in the U.S. where you can learn about the important events of the American Revolution in the places where the events actually took place. Visit churches, meeting houses, and burial grounds while guides dressed in authentic 18th century costumes ex-plain the significance of the people and events who made history along the route.

Day 2

Lexington and Concord At Minute Man National Historical Park, the opening battle of the Revolution is brought to life as you explore the battlefields and structures associated with April 19, 1775, and witness the American revolu-tionary spirit through the writings of the Concord authors.

Lunch

Salem This waterfront community is known for its rich maritime his-tory and it is the birthplace of the National Guard. Featured in Arthur Miller’s book, The Crucible, much of the city's cultural identity is re-flective of its role as the location of the Salem Witch Trials of 1692. Salem also is a vibrant, pedestrian-friendly city where you will see historic architecture, museums, and an eclectic mix of shops.

Dinner

Salem Ghost Tour Licensed guides take you on a tour of America’s most haunted city. This historically accurate tour explores Salem’s notorious past, inspired by the true events and the hysteria of the Witch Trials of 1692. Graveyards, alleys, jail houses and more tell a story that will inform and entertain.

Day 3

Whale Watching Knowledgeable naturalists guide you on an exhila-rating and educational experience. Be within feet of some of the most graceful, rare mammals in the world as we explore a marine sanctu-ary and one of the primary feeding grounds for humpback whales, finback whales, pilot whales, minke whales and the endangered right whales.

Lunch

Plymouth Plantation The permanent, outdoor exhibits near the site of the original settlement recreate the sights, sounds, and stories of the 17th century. This living museum complex tells the interwoven stories of two distinct cultures, English and Native. Recreated from historical records, you will learn by exploring a 17th-Century English village and a Wampanoag home site.

Mayflower II Step onto a full-scale reproduction of the tall ship that brought the Pilgrims to Plymouth in 1620. Costumed role-players tell you about their perilous journey across the Atlantic, while modern guides speak about the fascinating history of the ships and their pas-sengers. Learn about the Mayflower Compact and how America's constitutional tradition began shipboard almost 400 years ago. Re-flect on your own family's immigration story on one of the world's old-est wooden vessels that still sails today.
