Washington DC
Washington, DC is a worldwide symbol of democracy with stirring monumental icons at every turn. Situated on the picturesque Potomac River, the city is full of marble and light with beautiful landscaping and centuries-old architecture.

The Capitol building and its new Visitor Center is just one of the many sites providing unparalleled access to the workings of our government. Student groups may tour the Capitol and meet with their Senator or Representative. Your tour might also include the Supreme Court, the Library of Congress and the National Archives housing the original Declaration of Independence, US Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The White House is not to be missed, as well as the Korean War, Vietnam Veterans, WWII and new Pentagon 911 Memorials plus the awesome presidential landmarks honoring Washington, Lincoln, Jefferson and FDR.

The Smithsonian Institute, aka the Nation’s Attic, maintains the official US collections at the Natural History, Air and Space, and American History Museums, plus many others on and near the majestic National Mall. CTA makes it possible to see them all.

A CTA walking tour of Arlington National Cemetery affords student groups the opportunity to understand its historical significance as a solemn place honoring the country’s fallen heroes. Students often participate in the wreath laying ceremony at the hallowed Tomb of the Unknowns, a moving experience they will remember always.

CTA groups have loads of fun at Washington’s recent top attraction, the Newseum, as well as the International Spy Museum, and several recreational and entertainment venues around the city including Kennedy Center, Arena Stage and historic Ford's Theatre.
