Wilson College has offered a chance to visit D.C. for $25. It’s a round trip price for one day. You need to sign up with Lorie Helman prior to the day if you are interested in going. There’s only one chance left on the 27th of April. The shuttle will leave campus at 8 a.m. and be back to campus around 7-8 p.m. Sight-seeing the day trip are most museums and sightseeing spots which are free to visit. Here are some nice tour spots!
- United States Capitol
The Capitol is a good place to start your day and take some good photos. Its external appearance is fancy enough to make some tourists get confused if this is the White House. On top of the dome of the building, there is a small bronze statue of Liberty. It’s located at the end of Washington National Mall and represents the United States. Except for the period during which the National Assembly is convened, visits are not specifically restricted and access to the conference room is possible.
- United States Botanical Garden
If you visit United States Capitol, you should go to this Botanical Garden, too, because it’s right next to the Capitol. It is also free to enter, and is open 10 a.m. till 5 p.m. every day. The fun point is miniature landmarks of D.C are hidden in the Botanical Garden, so you can find those landmarks while you look around the Garden.
- The White House
Since you are in the U.S. capital, it is good to visit the White House where the President lives! The park around the White House is also great to take a walk on a sunny day. Unfortunately, you cannot enter the inside of the building without an advance reservation.
- Lincoln Memorial
It’s one of the most popular sightseeing places at D.C., and there is World WarⅡMemorial and a pond on the way to the Lincoln Memorial, so you can look around those beautiful spots, too. In D.C, you can see the Washington Monument mostly everywhere because it’s the highest structure, but the Lincoln Memorial is a great place to take a photo of the Monument with the pond. One can be reminded of the scenes from Forest Gump while watching the view of the Monument at the Memorial. At night, the Monument lights up, so it’s great for night viewing.
