Law Enforcement Students Visit The Nation's Capitol, New York City

June of 2018, three students, their teacher, and one parent joined EF Tours and traveled to Washington DC and New York City as a historical and cultural experience.  Along their journey, they visited such historic sites as the World War II Memorial, the Vietnam Memorial, The Lincoln and Jefferson Memorials, and the MLK Junior Memorial.  The travelers also stopped by the Library of Congress and the National Archives, as well as the United States House of Representatives and the United States Senate.  Other important sites visited included Monticello and Arlington National Cemetery, as well as a number of Smithsonian Institute museums.


The travelers also toured New York City, visiting such memorable locations as the Empire State Building, the 911 Memorial, Wall Street, Times Square, Ellis Island, the Statue of Liberty and Central Park.  The group also had the privilege of seeing Broadway musical Beautiful, the Carole King Story.
