Are you excited by American history and its diverse people? Do museums thrill you? How about wandering around iconic buildings and landmarks recognized by not only every American but by people from all over the world? If so, we’ve got you covered! Travel with Mid-State to Washington, DC, for a dive into our country’s past, present, and future.

You'll start with just one class meeting that sets the stage for a five-day visit to DC. Course assignments will give you the chance to prepare for the trip and reflect on a learning experience like no other. Once there, you'll have the chance to journey through history at many of the city’s renowned museums, tour memorials in remembrance of historic leaders, honor those who fought to preserve our great nation, and visit the places where our country’s leaders create, debate, and oversee the laws and policies that impact every one of us. And, yes, time will be available in the itinerary for you to individually explore, shop, or just relax while you take in the city.
