Pre-Jamboree Tour Plans Taking Shape

Only 600 days until we depart for the 2013 National Jamboree!  Plans are beginning to take shape for the tour of historic landmarks and national monuments we will see as part of this east coast adventure. The draft itinerary includes destinations such as:

  • Statue of Liberty
  • Lunch on the USS Intrepid
  • Tour New Your City
  • Tour Philadelphia
    • Independence Square
    • Liberty Bell
    • US Mint
  • Tour Valley Forge
  • Tour Gettysburg
  • Tour Washington D.C.
    • Lincoln Memorial
    • Jefferson Memorial
    • Vietnam, Korean and WWII Memorials
    • Arlington National Cemetery
    • White House
    • US Capitol
    • Washington Monument
    • Kennedy Center
  • Visit Smithsonian Museums
  • Tour Colonial Williamsburg
  • Visit Busch Gardens

The boys should get to know the stories behind these historic places!

Read books about the people involved in the events that took place at these locations.

Choose school projects that help you learn and understand the significance of our national monuments and their place in history.

UPDATE: Watch all episodes of American Ride!

This trip will be much more meaningful if you have some knowledge and awareness of why we are visiting these important landmarks!

I know July 2013 seems like a long way away, but I bet it’ll be here before we know it.

T-minus 600 days and counting!
