Fall For This

fallkids
When fall foliage peaks, shades of orange, gold and crimson provide brilliant displays along the East Coast.  It is the perfect time to enjoy the sparkling shades of autumn and take an educational tour of New York City or Washington D.C. student tour.
In New York City, your New York City school trip will notice that Central Park comes alive as bright colors illuminate its picture-perfect architecture and landscaping.  Your New York City student tour group can take in famous sites like, Times Square, Grand Central Station and Rockefeller Center.
Your Washington D.C. educational tour group can head further south to Shenandoah National Park in Virginia in conjunction with an educational tour of Washington D.C.
The park’s iconic 105-mile Skyline Drive is a scenic highway that snakes over the Blue Ridge Mountains and provides spectacular fall shades.  A trip to Washington D.C. provides an immersion into the inner workings of our government and American history for your Washington D.C. student tour.

Old Ironsides Returns to Boston Waters

 After two years of restoration work, “Old Ironsides” has returned to the water and reopened for student tours and educational tours at the USS Constitution Museum in Boston.
The world’s oldest commissioned warship still afloat was launched in 1797 and earned its famous nickname after numerous victories in the War of 1812.  About every 20 years, the USS Constitution enters dry dock for below-the-waterline repairs. The recent restoration included slowly towing the ship out of the historic Charlestown Navy Yard and replacing 100 hull planks and installing 2,200 new copper sheets.
The warship was intended to last at most, 20 years.  Due to constant care, the over 200 year-old vessel is the only remaining survivor of six ships created when President George Washington signed the Naval Armament Act.

How Did New York City Become “The Big Apple”?

bigappl

New York City‘s nickname has nothing to do with growing apples.  The nickname was used as a reference to the city’s race tracks that were considered to be popular venues.  Newspaper reporter John Fitz Gerald used the moniker in his articles, followed by 1930s jazz musicians who used it to refer to the city with the big league music clubs.  Forty years later, the nickname regained popularity as part of a tourism campaign, and the rest is history.

Whether it’s a Red Delicious or a Granny Smith, New York City is a great place for your next student tour group or educational tour!

The History of Flag Day

Flag-Day.jpg

Over 100 years ago on May 30, 1916, President Woodrow Wilson issued a presidential proclamation establishing a national Flag Day on June 14.  The day celebrates the adoption of the “Stars and Stripes” as the official flag of the United States.

According to American legend, in June 1776, George Washington commissioned Betsy Ross, a Philadelphia seamstress, to create a flag for our nation in anticipation of a declaration of its independence from England.

On June 14, 1777, John Adams spoke about the flag at a meeting of the Continental Congress in Philadelphia.  Adams stated that the flag shall have thirteen stripes, one for each of the thirteen colonies that declared independence from Great Britain, and alternate red and white.  The Union will be represented by thirteen white five-pointed stars on a blue background, representing a new constellation.

To date, there have been twenty-seven official versions of the flag.  Stars have been added as states have entered the Union.  The current version dates to July 4, 1960, when Hawaii became our 50th state.

Museum Mile Summer Festival

turtle-sleepover_dynamic_lead_slide
New York City‘s special museum season kicks off on June 13th with the Museum Mile Festival.  Several museums keep their doors open longer than usual and offer free admission to patrons.  Your New York City student tour group will enjoy visits to these museums:
(1) On June 13th, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum begins its Summer Tuesdays series with extended hours until 9 p.m.  As your New York City school trip walks around the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed rotunda, your New York City educational tour group will enjoy work by artists including Kandinsky, Picasso, van Gogh and Pollock, who also has his own show, “Jackson Pollock: Exploring Alchemy” through September 6th.
(2) Viewing all of the Metropolitan Museum of Art‘s galleries could take a New York City school trip days but this summer make sure your New York City student tour group sees the new Costume Institute exhibit, “Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between”, focusing on the Japanese fashion designer, and “Sara Berman’s Closet”, a re-creation filled with shoes, clothes, linens, beauty products, luggage and other necessities,
all in shades of white.  The Roof Garden Bar offers summer treats with dazzling views of New York City.
(3) The American Museum of Natural History offers both children and adults the opportunity to sleepover at the museum.  If your New York City educational tour group prefers to visit while the sun is out, make sure your New York City school trip does not miss the museum’s newest exhibit, “Mummies”, which looks at the mummification practices of ancient Egyptians and Peruvians; and displays such as “The Titanosaur”, “Cuba”  and “Opulent Oceans” as well as the film “Humpback Whales”.
(4) The New York Historical Society celebrates the 100th anniversary of the United States’ entry into World War I.  New York City student tour groups have a chance to explore how American artists reacted to the conflict with “World War I Beyond the Trenches”, featuring artwork by John Singer Sargent, Georgia O’Keeffe and others, as well as toys and posters.  The exhibit, “Elosie at the Museum”, takes a closer look at the minds, sketches and manuscripts behind the picture-book heroine.  End your visit with a treat from the recently opened Parliament Espresso and Coffee Bar.

(5) On the first Saturday of every month, the Brooklyn Museum stays up late. Target First Saturdays allow New York City school trip groups to explore exhibits until 11 p.m.  Enjoy “Georgia O’Keeffe: Living Modern”, “We Wanted a Revolution: Black Radical Women, 1965–85”, and “Infinite Blue”.  Independence Day is celebrated in July and Caribbean culture will be celebrated in August.  Stop by the cafe for a snack or an Artist Sandwich, inspired by artists featured at the museum.
