These sample itineraries show how a trip to Maryland’s Heart of the Civil War Heritage Area might take shape. Itineraries are easily customized to meet your group’s needs and interests. Whether you stay a week, or overnight, our region offers the practical advantage of a central, safe location, unparalleled in its historic importance and scenic beauty.

Interested in a particular theme? Your student sojourn can be adjusted to include more of the following themes each day:

  • Preservation (battlefields and other historical and natural resources)
  • African American History
  • Lincoln’s footsteps and legacy
  • Women’s history
  • Transportation history (Railroad, C & O Canal, National Road)
  • Visual, performing and literary arts

Looking for service learning opportunities?
We will match your group with a volunteer opportunity and they will return home knowing they contributed to the care of a landmark in U.S. history.

Touring a youth choir or band?
We can connect your group with both historic and contemporary performance venues.
