Here are 3 important items to pack that are top priorities for any student traveler:
- Washington, D.C. is home to museums, monuments, memorials, and more. Your group will walk from one to another so make sure to wear some comfy shoes. Flip flops and sandals are an absolutely terrible idea.
- A bottle for water is of the utmost importance. Imagine a 90 degree day at the Lincoln Memorial, which rests 200 meters from the famed Potomac River. “Humid” is one way to describe the outside, but muggy, oppressive, sticky, and sweltering would be other ways. Drink a lot of water and stay hydrated!
- “Dear Diary” are great words to write at the end of each day in D.C. Bring a journal, sketchbook, or notebook and jot down a few notes about what you learned that day or a funny fail that happened to a friend. We love to hear all about this sort of thing, so don’t forget to Share Your Trip!
