Visiting the East Coast
Our high school students and teachers have been able to visit several places on the East Coast over the last few days. Some of the places they have visited in D.C. are: the Mount Vernon Estate (George Washington's home), the Newseum, Smithsonian Institute, our Capitol, the National Archives, Ford's Theatre, and Arlington National Cemetery.
While in the "City of Brotherly Love," our students have also had the opportunity to eat a real Philly Cheesesteak, visit the National Constituion Center, Reading Terminal Market, Independence Hall, and the Rocky Statue!
The NYC adventures started with a cruise to view the Manhattan skyline and the Statue of Liberty. Later on, they were able to visit the Financial District and get their picture with the famous "Charging Bull," visit the 9/11 Memorial and see One World Trade Center (the new World Trade Center currently being constructed), and the Broadway show, Nice Work if You Can Get It. The next day was packed with visiting the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Central Park, 5th Avenue, Rockefeller Center, Grand Central Station, Macy's, and the Empire State Building!
Our group has been enriched by visiting and experiencing a part of their country's history.
