Study tours to Washington, D.C.
America's first president, George Washington, chose the location for the town that bears his name. Since 1800, Washington, D.C. has been the home of the United States government.
Over the past 200 years, the city has grown into one of the absolute best destinations that the U.S. can offer. Washington's position in international politics can not be overstated and heads of state from around the world flock constantly here to meet with US incumbent president in the White House.
Washington is an obvious destination for class trips or group travel. The majestic monuments serve as memorials to America's efforts and losses in various wars throughout the 20th century. The many museums around "The Mall" - each of which are dedicated to some aspect of America's history - are quite centrally located. The museums are enormous and there are many of them, so it is quite possible to spend many days going through the impressive exhibitions.
Lastly, Washington is a very beautiful and orderly city with a welcoming and helpful local population. For most people, a study tour to Washington is an experience of a lifetime. From there, it is also possible to take a 3.5 hour train ride to New York.
