Suggested itinerary for School groups
This superb cross-curricular tour of New York and Washington DC is the ideal way to cover some of the most important locations in the United States.
The New York skyline is dominated by its skyscrapers, and the most well-known of those is the Empire State Building. For forty years this was the tallest building in the world, and the views from this 102-storey building over the Big Apple are simply magnificent. It’s an excellent opportunity for students to grasp the layout of the city’s many landmarks, as well as learning about the incredible challenge of creating it.
A short boat journey takes you to the base of the Statue of Liberty, famous symbol of freedom and safety to millions of immigrants over the years. And a short distance away, there is Ellis Island, which until the 1950s was America’s largest immigration processing centre. A museum has now been set up here, offering fascinating insights into the lives of those who arrived in the city seeking sanctuary or a fresh start - a valuable addition to any school trip to the United States.
Washington DC is the main seat of power in the most powerful country in the world. Travelbound can arrange guided visits to some of America’s most important political arenas, including the US Capitol building, the Supreme Court, and the Library of Congress. Here your students will gain a deeper understanding of how the highly-complex American political system works, as well as getting an insider’s look into some of the most hallowed and influential places in the country.
America is known as “The Land of the Free”, but there is often a price to be paid for freedom. There’s no better illustration of that fact than a guided walking tour around the many memorials of Washington DC, such as the Vietnam War, Second World War, Korean War and Martin Luther King Memorials and Arlington Cemetery
