Washington DC trip for AP US History Class

Jump to last reply

Hi all,

We have 28 people in our group, 23 students and 5 chaperones. We will arrive in DC late in the evening on March 14, 2014. We have already purchased plane tickets, metro passes, and hotel rooms. We will have through the 19th for touring, 5 full days. I have already contacted our congressman for the Capitol tour but have not heard back from them (do they really send a response by mail instead of email??) This is a list of things we would like to do. These are not set in stone and we do not have to do all of them but wanted to make sure we got as much out of this trip as we could.
Capitol Building
Supreme Court
Library of Congress
National Archives
Mount Vernon
National Gallery of Art
Smithsonians
Holocaust Museum
Arlington Cemetary
White House (are there any tours?)
Annapolis (if feasible)
Possibly the zoo, botanical gardens, and the mint

Possible itineraries would be appreciated and any other educational places that you think a mature group of teenagers would enjoy. Any tips for our group size and any recommendations for economical dinners would also be appreciated. Breakfasts are included and we plan to bag lunch when we are able. Thanks in advance for your help!

Tina
