Field Trips We Have Done:

We live in Utah, but love going to different museums when we travel. We are fortunate to have been able to go to museums, zoos, and aquariums in Seattle, Washington, DC, California, Arizona, and Utah since we started homeschooling. I recommend researching ahead of time when you travel, and calling to see if there are homeschool discounts! Check out Museums USA.
