D.C. student trip highlights!

September 18, 2023

Here at Global Travel Alliance, our team takes great pride in customizing each group’s trip. One of specialties is middle school travel to Washington, D.C. and the histori East Coast; it’s a rite of passage for many schools across the country, and for good reason. 

While our veteran group leaders each have favorite inclusions and ways they like to organize their class’s Washington, D.C. itinerary, there are certain highlights that appear on nearly all of our D.C. itineraries. Curious? Let’s take a look! 

1. Photo op at the White House

They’ve seen it on TV and in the movies, and now it’s their chance to see it “IRL!” Students love this iconic photo op, and our Tour Guides do their best to work some travel magic to stop by when it’s least crowded for the best views.

2. Arlington National Cemetery

An important part of our key theme that “Freedom is Not Free,” our visits to Arlington are somber, educational, and inspiring.
