Understanding The Divide Between D.C. As An Iconic Location And A Residence

No question about it, Washington, DC is an iconic location as the seat of the American government. It’s no wonder that many businesses and associations choose to hold their annual conferences here. The historical status and importance of our nation’s capital is one of the reasons why you may choose to bring your family here for a vacation while you are working.

Yet, Washington, DC, is in a sense, a tale of two cities. The iconic and the residential neighborhoods, which are as different as different can be. Even the latter has a great divide, with high-class, elite condos and townhouses near governmental buildings and lower-class tenements in much of the rest of the city. The difference between these two areas can be an eye-opener for kids who may think that our nation’s capital is solely a place for monuments, government buildings and picture postcard scenery.

D.C. Youth Tours is a great way for your family to find out about the differences that exists between residential Washington and its iconic landmarks. Our tour service is the only one in our nation’s capital that specializes in engaging youths ages 8 to 15 on the history as well as the fun aspects of local attractions. While you’re working or sitting in your conference sessions, your family can enhance their time here by spending one or more days learning about this great city in tours that are targeted especially for them. There’s no standing around being bored at sites that your children have no interest in because our tours are kid-centric. Our specially trained tour guides are armed with facts that kids find interesting. Plus, they’ll also get to meet and make friends with youths their own age. There isn’t a better way for your family to spend their time in DC.

Choose from half-day or full-day tours that visit many of the city’s famous sites such as the Smithsonian Castle, the National Air and Space Museum, the Vietnam War Memorial, Embassy Row, the Jefferson Memorial and much more. Our tours have fun, patriotic names too, such as The Red Tour, the White Tour, the Blue Tour and the Orange Tour. You can also choose from specialty excursions such as The Science and Technology Tour, the Future Policymakers Tour or the Arts and Humanities Tour. You can even create a custom tour for your own group!

All tours start and end at the Smithsonian Metro stop on the National Mall. Each tour guide is equipped with a first-aid kit, sunscreen and cell phone. Your children will receive color-coded tee shirts to identify them and ensure their safety. What are you waiting for? Sign them up today.
