Submitted photo Over spring break, five Manistique students traveled with teacher Shawna Anderson to Washington DC and New York City, made some amazing memories, and saw some amazing sites. Washington DC included the Smithsonian Air and Space, Natural History and American History Museums, Ford’s Theater, Mt. Vernon, the Capitol, and walking tours of many monuments. At night, the group saw the Jefferson, Lincoln, Roosevelt, and King Memorials as well as the Korean and Vietnam memorials. Additional sites included the National Holocaust Museum and Arlington Cemetery. There the group watched the changing of the guard and a wreath laying ceremony followed by a stop at the Iwo Jima Memorial before heading north to the “Big Apple”.

Although time was limited, the group saw a Broadway production of “Phantom of the Opera”, visited Times Square, the Statue of Liberty, 9/11 Memorial Site, and the Empire State Building before taking off for home. The week went quickly, and fun was had by all.
