Dear Parents and Students,
We are cautiously optimistic, as we monitor the CDC bulletins and other news, that rescheduling our tour to June this year will allow us to offer a safe and exciting live learning experience to interested eighth grade students through our annual tour of Washington, D.C., Williamsburg, Mount Vernon, Monticello, and Gettysburg.

While the safety of all participants is essential, we are also focused on the quality of the tour. Most of the indoor sites we normally visit remain closed with no set date for reopening. While much could change in the next three months, the possibility of their continued closure has allowed us to explore other sites. Because there is so much history and culture in the area, we are confident that the tour will still afford the same in- person, live learning experience that has been the hallmark of our tours for over forty years.
In Washington D.C., all the outdoor monuments and memorials are currently open (including Lincoln, Vietnam, Korea, Jefferson, FDR, MLK, and WWII), and we can provide more in-depth background and historic significance then we normally have time for.
In Williamsburg, all the outdoor exhibits are open, providing a “walk back into history” to our nation’s 18th century beginnings. The Jamestown Festival Park is mostly open-air displays and demonstrations. The presidential estates at Mt. Vernon and Monticello are open, and while the tours of the main house are limited, the grounds and out-buildings are open. Our escorted tour of the Gettysburg battlefield tour is still operating. As our nation continues to recover, we anticipate that more sites may open as well.
Students will depart the morning of June 11 from Los Angeles aboard a regularly scheduled airline and return the evening of June 17. Once in Washington, we will enjoy deluxe, restroom-equipped, recliner coaches with experienced driver/guides. Students will be chaperoned throughout the trip with a 1:14 adult to student ratio. While in D.C., students will stay in deluxe accommodations such as Sheraton, Hyatt, or Hilton. In Williamsburg, students will stay in leading chain hotels such as Best Western or Clarion, all with interior hallways. Rooms are well appointed with two large beds, cable TV, etc. Students will have an opportunity to select their own roommates, with two students assigned to each room.
All meals are provided during the trip, and will follow CDC guidelines for food safety. Vegetarian options are available at each meal, however, gluten-free options may be limited.
The complete cost of the tour is $1910.00 per person*. This includes: airfare, airport transfers, lodging, sightseeing, all meals, all admissions, supervision, guide fees, and tips. APPLICATIONS FOR REGISTRATION ARE INITIATED ONLINE AT TravelEd2DC.com, BEGINNING MONDAY, MARCH 8th. PLEASE READ CAREFULLY THE REGISTRATION INSTRUCTIONS BELOW.
From past experience we know that the trip will provide students with a learning experience and friendships that will last a lifetime. Our website (www.TravelEd2DC.com) should provide answers to most questions.
