FAQs

How strict is the itinerary?

Not very. Other than the dinner at the Marine Corp Museum and the guided tour by bus, we wanted to give you as much flexibility as possible to see the sites you want to see. We also wanted to make sure you had access to some attractions that are overlooked treasures.

Why isn’t lodging included?

Some homeschool families will have friends or family they may be able to stay with on this trip. They may also have preferred parts of town or hotel accomodations. If you need help identifying lodging options, please let us know!
