A senior class trip should appeal to everyone in the group, so you should concentrate on selecting a destination that provides fun recreational activities that everyone can participate in. It's also important to consider destinations that are well suited to group tours, particularly if your class is a large one.
Ideas For Senior Class Trip Destinations
Senior class trips should be adventurous as well as educational. That's why you should choose destinations that combine the excitement of discovery with appealing recreational activities that everyone can enjoy.
For the perfect senior class trip, consider Washington D.C. It offers an exciting mix of historic landmarks, interactive museums and tours and must-see venues that everyone wants to go to. Best of all, Washington is ideally suited to group touring and your senior class will be catered for wherever you decide to go. Several trip highlights, such as the Jefferson Memorial, the Lincoln Memorial and Arlington National Cemetery, are open late for after-hours viewing. Likewise, you can have a day packed with activities at the Smithsonian Museum, the White House and the U.S. Capitol.
If you have the budget and the time, your senior class may want to consider a trip to London, England. London is a cradle of world and European history, from the Tower of London to the Houses of Parliament and your class will have a true once-in-a-lifetime experience full of thrilling adventures. You can float down the Thames on an excursion boat, visit Buckingham Palace and fly high above the city in the famous London Eye ferris wheel.
For a great outdoor adventure, your class can visit the Grand Canyon, where you can see Old West history come to life right before your eyes. You'll have the opportunity to take guided tours, where experienced tour guides will relate the history of the area and how it relates to the development of the American West. Additionally, you and your class can hike, go horseback riding and even rafting. You'll also have access to gaming arcades and other fun recreational activities when you're not sightseeing.
Senior Class Tour Packages
If you want to experience the ideal, stress-free senior class trip, opt for a senior class tour package. Tour packages offer the best option in traveling because your itinerary and traveling routes are completely planned for you; you don't have to worry about early closings or inaccessible tour destinations. Your class can choose from a wide variety of tour packages that are sure to appeal to everyone in your group.
Wherever you decide to go, take a camera to record the journey. After all, a senior class trip is a unique experience and you're going to be experiencing adventures that will provide warm, happy memories for years to come.
