The Library of Congress is the largest library in the world, with millions of books, recordings, photographs, newspapers, maps and manuscripts in its collections. The Library is the main research arm of the U.S. Congress and the home of the U.S. Copyright Office. The highlight of any visit to the Library of Congress is the glorious Great Hall of the Thomas Jefferson Building, which rises 75 feet from marble floor to stained glass ceiling. Marble columns, staircases, mosaics and paintings make this one of the most beautiful public buildings in America. After the guided tour be sure to check out the incredible exhibits currently on display! The rest of the day is free to enjoy in DC., and we will return to SU at approximately 9:00 pm.

Every year in December the town of St. Michaels rings in the holiday season with an incredible display of decorations, lights and most importantly, community spirit. On December 7-9 they begin their Christmas in St. Michaels benefit celebration, raising over $1 million over the past 30+ years for local non-profits in the community! Our trip comes the following week, when the shops will still be open and the lights still bright, but the town will be a little less crowded. Enjoy the day browsing the shops in search of that perfect gift, visit the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum, and enjoy the local restaurants. We'll return to Salisbury University at approximately 6:00 pm.
