What Happens On the Trip?

Each trip is organized from scratch...this means each trip is unique.

However, each trip will have many similar stops and activities.

The following itinerary from 2016 is provided to give you an idea of what a typical trip looks like. Notice, the trip includes very full days. It has early start times and late finish times so many different activities can be squeezed into the short time spent in Washington.

The 2017 itinerary will be available approximately 30 days prior to the trip.
