Favorite Field Trips In Florida

Going on field trips is part of homeschooling, public schooling and just everyday life with kiddos. As homeschoolers, we love going on our field trips in the middle of the year when most other children and families are at school. ;) I'm just being an open book for a minute. Is that alright? Going when most other families are back in school or work means we have a pretty open reign of the exhibits or places we visit. I mean who likes to wait in line, right?

So here's a list of some of our favorite field trips to add to your must-see list:

1. Dinosaur World - If you have a dinosaur lover in your family, this is the place to be. Be sure to check out the fossil dig and take home a couple of real fossils while you're there. Enjoy a picnic at the large picnic area with playground after checking out all the life-size dinos. If you're heading out in the hotter days, be sure to take bug spray with you as the trail is in the wooded areas.

Meeting the dinosaurs!

 2. MOSI - Science your favorite subject? Come get hands on with this awesome museum. We love visiting all the exhibits and the children's area is amazing. Everything is hands on and you can watch the IMAX while you're there. Large exhibits change throughout the year and offer awesome things like Mythbuster and chocolate!!

Bouncing off the wall... literally.

3. Homosassa Springs Wildlife Park - Learn all about Florida's animals in this amazing park. Meet manatees up close and personal or check out the amazing Florida black bear. See the animals that call Florida home all in one location. The best part? We had a 20 minute boat ride to the park that was simply awesome.

4. Parks and Historical Sights -Florida is chock full of parks and excitement outdoors. From beaches to hiking trails, you can find everything outdoors you could think of. Check out the fort at Ft. Desoto while you're swimming at the beach or discover Crystal River and its archaeological sights. There's always something new to discover.

5. Theme Parks - Yep. We even visit these for educational benefits at times. Seaworld, Busch Gardens, and even Universal can be educational. Learn about conservation efforts, animals around the world and how to make those crazy makeups in the movies.

These are just a few of our favorite field trips around Florida. What are your favorite trips where you live? How often do you do a field trip?
