Now that Labor Day is over and you’ve stowed all those white clothes away until next year, it’s time to start focusing on the fall. Football season is starting, baseball season is coming to a close and the kids are headed back to school sooner rather than later. Sometimes the transition from summer fun back to the real world can be a rocky one. Make it a little easier by seeing if your kids are going to be heading on any fun school trips early on in the year. If not, here are a few suggestions about places that offer School Trip Deals that are exciting as well as educational.
Students in the Boston area will probably get a kick out of taking a Plymouth Plantation Tour. Massachusetts is full of historical cities and Plymouth certainly qualifies. One of the original places in the U.S. where industry flourished and free trade was encouraged, Plymouth offers visitors a chance to learn about the people, places, and events that helped shape our country. Stops on the hour-long tour include Brewster Gardens, Plymouth Rock Cole’s Hill, Leyden Street, and the Town Square. A guide in traditional period dress will conduct the tour; that’s something you won’t see every day.
Chicago-area students have the option go on a Chicago Trolley Tour and see all the places in the Windy City that have been blowing visitors away for decades. Guests of the tour can hop on and off a Double-Decker Trolley for up to eight hours as they visit as many of the stops on the loop (nine in total) as they want. The Chicago Trolley Tour visits places including the Adler Planetarium, the Shedd Aquarium and the Navy and North Piers. For people thinking about planning a school excursion on the west coast, the California Academy of Sciences is a great option.
For extended trips, there are plenty of School Trip Deals that are available by using Go City Cards and Explorer Passes. These all-inclusive passes are an affordable way to let educators plan a flexible schedule so that students can see as many attractions in a given city as possible. Go City Cards and Explorer Passes can save each individual student up to 55% on admission to top museums, tours, and other educational sights.
For a sense of how many places students can visit across the country on a discount, consider this: Go City Cards and Explorer Passes can be used at 53 Boston attractions, 25 Chicago attractions, 36 Los Angeles attractions, 35 Miami attractions, 56 New York City attractions, 36 Oahu attractions, 46 Orlando attractions, 45 San Diego attractions and 29 San Francisco attractions.
