    Is A Trip To Washington D.C. Worth $1,218? I’m in 8th grade and my history teacher told us about a trip that we were allowed to take after school in the summer. The trip costs $1,218 we go to Washington D.C. and see the Washington Monument, WW2 Memorial, Arlington National Cemetery, Iwo Jima Memorial, Pentagon Memorial, Holocaust Musuem, Vietnam Memorial, Korean Memorial, Alexandria, Mount Vernon, Smithsonian Institution, Lincoln Memorial, Jefferson Memorial, FDR Memorial, MLK Memorial, Ford’s Theatre, Petersen House, Capitol Grounds Tour, White House, and the National Archives. Since we live in St. Louis, we would fly there by plane. The trip includes round trip airfare, transportation, hotel, meals, and admission fees. My best friend and one of my good friends told me to think about going. I don’t really know how much trips cost and want to know if it’s worth it. We stay there for three days and 2 nights. It seems it’s a fun experience especially with my friends and since we’ve been learning about George Washington and a bunch of the first presidents, it may be cool to see it in person. I usually go to an overnight camp in the summer which costs more than the D.C. trip but it’s for four weeks and I’m not doing it this year. Please tell me your opinion. I procrastinated which was a bad idea and registrations due March 15th!

      What you will do is make history come to life. This will enhance your high school classes.

      You said that you usually spend more than this going camping, so I would definitely recommend it.

      I have been stationed in Washington, DC when I was on active duty. I have lived and worked in Washington, DC. I have lived part of my retired life in Washington, DC.

      Go register before it is too late!

    How Much Money Should I Take To Washington D.C? I’m going to DC for 2 days on a field trip the hotel is paid for along with dinner the first night and breakfast the next morning. Their is also a few tours paid for along the national mall. How much should I bring for food, and how much should i bring to souvenirs or other tours that are not included.

    Those included are:
    Hazy Udvar Air and Space Museum
    WWII memorial
    Holocaust Memorial Museum
    Washington Monument
    The white house
    and major monuments
    FDR memorial
    Jefferson memorial
    arlington national cemetery

    Scheduled food stops are:
    pine grove McDonald’s (breakfast)
    on our own (lunch)
    U.S. Capitol Visitor’s Center cafeteria (lunch)
    capital mall food court Harrisburg (dinner)
    these are the ones that we pay for
    i’ve been to NYC so i know the basics of walking around the city

    • Curator says:

      I always like to error on having too much than too little. So here is a breakdown of what I think…

      1) You may wish to ride the Metro (subway) system. I would suggest that $7 a day would be enough on average. For 2 days, that is $14.

      2) Food inside Washington DC is expensive. Even the McDonald’s food court inside the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum is more expensive than other McDonald’s locations. I would say that you need to budget $15 per meal. That is 3 meals a day for $45, times 2 days, for a total of $90.

      3) Most travel groups will like to have a special “feast” before they leave town. This usually involves going to a nice eatery for a sitdown dinner and spending time together. That can cost you $50. Better add that in, just in case.

      4) Trinkets are not cheap. A T-shirt will cost at least $15, maybe $25. Sweatshirts more. Keychains at $5 to $10. I personally don’t believe in buying that “stuff”, but if you insist, you need to budget between $100 and $200. We will say $150 to be on the sane side.

      5) Always stuff that you need but don’t have. Extra batteries for your digital camera on the mall cost $8. A bottle of asprin at the hotel gift shop is another $8. A tube of toothpaste is $4. I like to have about $50 in extra money just in case I NEED something.

      Subway/Metro Fares – $14
      Meals – $90
      Fairwell Dinner – $50
      Trinkets – $100
      Emergency – $50

      You need $304 to cover all expenses on a trip to Washington DC. I would suggest getting a Visa Debit card with $100 on it, and then the other $204 in cash.

      Chances are, if you budget your money, you will actually go home with $200 that you never spent.

      A better way to remember your trip to Washington DC is to take a good digital camera with a huge memory card (maybe several). Snap as many photos of yourself at the different monuments, memorials and buildings as possible to document your trip. Also be sure to get the names and email addresses of others on the trip to share photos afterward.

      That $25 Washington DC Tshirt is going to fall apart in about 2 years. But some nice photos of you next to all of the important structures in the city will bring back memories for years to come.

    Isn’t It True That Most Liberals Don’t Go To War Because They Are Cowards? My two kids were courageous, and served their country. They are buried in Arlington National Cemetery, like true American Heroes. What brave kids I had.

    I’m so proud.

    Is It True That The Federal Government Can’t Even Run A Veterans Cemetery? A recent report shows “that the 150-year-old, Army-run, Arlington National Cemetery has problems with 25% of the graves! Errors include “mismarked or unmarked graves, urns that had been dug up and dumped on a dirt pile, and millions of dollars wasted on contracts that produced nothing…. a mass grave that held eight sets of cremated remains … a section for former slaves and black Civil War soldiers, cemetery maps showed a strip where 70 graves should have been. Today, not a single tombstone is there.”

    Is this true or is it some sort of right wing conspiracy to show how inept the Federal Government really is?
    Interesting thought Dean….unless it’s not run by the military and the right wing cospiracists point is that the military is the only department able to handle the job. Just guessing!

    • Curator says:

      Yes, as hard as it is to believe, it’s true. I imagine if trained accountants and auditors were to look at the books and operations of every department in the Federal Government they’d essentially the same ineptitude in all of them. Of course, since a thorough audit won’t happen we’ll never know.
