    Essential Tips for Planning a Field Trip

    Last updated 7 hours 42 minutes ago

    If you are in charge of planning the next school field trip, you have to organize all of the details to ensure that everything comes together on the day of the trip. Use the following tips to figure out the logistics of the trip so it is safe and fun for everyone:

    Choose Your Location

    Before you can make any plans, you have to decide where you want to go on your field trip. Whether you want to visit a historical site that complements your current lessons in class or visit a new attraction in your area, you must first choose a destination for the trip. Once you know where you want to go, you can figure out which date works the best for the venue and for your class so you can make reservations.

    Organize the Transportation

    The only way to ensure that everyone travels to the location safely is to organize group transportation. Reach out to charter bus rental companies to find a motor coach rental that can accommodate all of your children and chaperones. A charter bus company provides safe transportation and drivers that can offer reliable and convenient transportation on the day of the field trip.

    Create an Itinerary

    Having at least a general idea of how you want the day to go helps you keep everyone together and organized on the day of the trip. Create a basic timeline so you know how long it will take to travel to the destination. This timeline also gives you a plan for what you will do when you get to the destination.

    Must-See Attractions at Mt. Vernon

    Last updated 1 month ago

    Mount Vernon is an American landmark. What was once an active plantation is now one of the nation’s most visited historic sites and an enduring reminder of the life and legacy of our country’s most important founding father, George Washington. Once you make arrangement with a charter bus company to transport your family or work group to Mt. Vernon, make sure you see these can’t-miss attractions. 

    Ford Orientation Center
    Before you explore the grounds around Mt. Vernon, start your experience in the Ford Orientation Center. Here you can watch the 25-minute live-action adventure movie “We Fight to Be Free” and inspect a precise scale model of Washington’s mansion and the grounds surrounding Mt. Vernon.

    George Washington’s Mansion
    After George Washington moved into the house that his father built in 1752, he spent the next five decades greatly expanding the structure. The result is an impressive, 21-room residency with architectural features that showcase his status as a true Virginia gentleman.

    Slave Memorial and Burial Ground
    Located 50 yards from George Washington’s tomb is a memorial honoring the slaves and free African-Americans who lived and worked at Mt. Vernon during the 1700s and first half of the 1800s. Spent quiet time at the memorial beneath the shade of surrounding trees and reflect on the historical significance and impact of slavery.

    Pioneer Farm
    Although George Washington is known as a military commander and president, he was first and foremost a farmer—and he was quite an impressive farmer at that. Washington sought new approaches to agriculture and experimented with crop rotation, fertilizers, plowing practices, and more. You can tour the four-acre Pioneer Farm and see what it was like to live (and work) during Washington’s day and age.

    Haymarket Transportation makes it easy to take your entire family or company to see the historic Mt. Vernon. We are a full-service transportation company, and our fleet of charter buses, SUVs, sedans, and limousines will help you get there comfortably.
