Travel Club 2013 — The Eastern Seaboard Tour!

Are you interested in traveling to new and exciting places with your friends? Would you like to see New York City, Boston, and Washington D.C? There is still time to enroll in the Travel Club’s 2013 student trip to the East Coast. Middle School students (main campus district and Charter, and CAPS), as well as former middle school students and their families are all encouraged to join us on this extraordinary experience.

We’ll explore historical sites on the East Coast, with guided tours including Lexington Green (where the first shot of the Revolutionary War was fired), the Old North Church, Paul Revere’s home, and a guided walking tour of Boston. We’ll travel to New York City, via Philadelphia (and the Liberty Bell), where we’ll have guided tours of Manhattan, Greenwich Village, and SoHo, as well tours of Central Park, the Met, the Statue of Liberty, and the Empire State Building. We’ll take in a Broadway show before traveling to Washington D.C. At our nation’s capital, we’ll tour many of our national monuments (including the new MLK memorial, the Lincoln Memorial, and many others). We’ll tour Arlington National Cemetery and Mount Vernon, and we’ll take in the US Capitol building, the White House, the US Supreme Court, and other national landmarks. We’ll even have time to view national treasures in the Smithsonian Museums!

Corbett Travel Club has toured with EF Tours, a student-centered travel company, for almost a decade. Our trips are kid-centered, fun, memorable, and an amazing way to reinforce ideas that our students have been learning about all year. For a full itinerary, see our web page at this link: http://www.smithsonianstudenttravel.com with tour number 1320707. Enroll before February 21st for guaranteed space and lowest prices — fees increase after that date!

See you on tour!
