Halloween in Philadelphia

#TerrorBehindtheWalls awaits your #Philadelphiastudenttour at #EasternStatePenitentiary, the massive, gothic former prison in #Philadelphia.
Eastern State Penitentiary, once the most famous and expensive prison in the country, now stands as a living ruin with long empty cell blocks and remnants of the past. The frightening setting and professional scares make it a perfect setting for a high-startle experience for your #Philadelphiaeducationaltour.
Hollywood style special effects and lighting and more than 200 performers await your #Philadelphiaschooltrip “guests” at the six attractions behind the walls.  The Machine Shop, the most interactive attraction will lead your #Philadelphiagrouptour deep into the cell blocks into a space never before open to the public.  Additional attractions for your #Philadelphiafieldtrip include the Blood Yard, the Break Out, the Lock Down, the Detrius, the Infirmary and the Quarantine.

Eat Your Pie

bostoncreampie

Happy #NationalBostonCreamPieDay!  In 1856, Sanzian, a French chef working at the #ParkerHouseHotel in Boston, invented #Bostoncreampie.  In 1996, #Bostoncreampie became the official dessert of Massachusetts in a bill sponsored by Norton High School.

Although it is called a pie, #Bostoncreampie is actually a cake.  It consists of two round layers of sponge cake with a thick vanilla custard filling, usually frosted with a chocolate glaze.

The best way to celebrate #NationalBostoncreampieday is with a #Bostoneducationltour or a #Bostonschooltrip and a big slice of #Bostoncreampie!  Student Tours, Educational Tours, or Group ToursColonial Capital Tours (www.colonialcapitaltours.com) will customize your #Bostonstudenttour for you and your #Bostonschooltrip!

Frightened in New York

Organization Meets To Settle Tallest Building Debate Between One World Trade And Willis Tower
New York Fright –
Where to Get Scared this Halloween
#NewYorkCity is the filled with haunting attractions that your #NewYorkfieldtrip will most certainly enjoy this #Halloween.
#BloodManor haunted warehouse attraction in lower Manhattan isn’t for the timid.  This self-described “cutting edge” phantasmagoria focuses on things that cut, tear and shred. Traveling with a glow stick, your #educationaltour #group will meander through a labyrinth where they will encounter terrifying actors who bring nightmares to life on spooky sets.
#HorsemansHollow located on the spacious and well-maintained grounds of 17th century Philipsburg Manor claims to take the Legend of Sleepy Hollow to its darkest extremes.  Your #studenttour will walk along a haunted trail and through Ichabod’s Schoolhouse before encountering the Headless Horseman himself.
#ForestofFear is a production of the New York Renaissance Faire.  Comprised of seven sequentially linked indoor/outdoor attractions, your #educationaltour group will be spooked by Blind Panic (lit only by glowsticks), the Slaughterhouse, Mourningwood Cemetary and CarniEvil of the Damned, all with live actors.  Not recommended for the faint of heart.
#HauntatRockyLedge is eight acres of intense scares that await your #fieldtrip.  #Schooltrips and “Guests” proceed in groups of six along a haunted wooded trail through two haunted houses and a haunted corn maze where they are “greeted” by ill-wishing residents.
#HeadlessHorsemanHayridesandHauntedHouses is a 10-attraction property in Ulster County where decapitation is the prevailing theme.  #NewYorkschooltrips begin their two-plus-hour adrenaline adventure with a Horseman’s War Hayride, nine sinister sites filled with 250+ resident monsters and a live illusion show.

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.

She’s in the Water

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!
