Member tour operators belonging to the Student & Youth Travel Association, SYTA, selected these 10 cities as the Top United States Travel Destinations favored by students and teachers for 2019.
1: NEW YORK, NEW YORK
Home to some of the most renowned museums and monuments in the world, New York City offers students a chance to delve into the worlds of hands-on learning, STEM, seacrafts and spacecrafts, modern and contemporary art, and culture—to name a few. Students could also remember and reflect on events that changed the trajectory of history forever and still affect the world we live in today.
Broadway shows are a Big Apple staple—and rightly so! Whether students simply see a show or take part in workshops and behind-the-scenes tours, the opportunities create undoubtedly memorable experiences for those who have a passion for music and performance.
New York is home to one of the most recognizable skylines in the world. Elevate students' learning by showing them iconic sites from a bird's-eye view—several stories up—or from an alternative perspective on the water. Harbor cruises and water taxis provide a refreshing perspective of a city that's full of things to see and do.
Students could explore oddities and artifacts, test their code-breaking and problem-solving skills, and stand shoulder-to-shoulder with some of their favorite A-list celebrities. "The City That Never Sleeps" and its five incredibly diverse boroughs are waiting for you and your students!
