Summer Field Trip Ideas

summer field trips

I love to GO – just about anywhere. Staying in the same environment for too long makes me a little stir crazy, and I can often see that in little ones too. During the summer, I especially make it a point to enjoy all of the wonderful opportunities to explore our community, and also to go a little further away than we might during the school year. It helps me to have a master list of all of the places that we love to visit so that I can mix up the indoor and outdoor experiences, and also find little trips that fit our budget best. Here’s what that list looks like for us:

Local parks with playgrounds

State parks

National parks

Historic areas

Botanical gardens

Community gardens

Splash pads

Water parks

Art museums

Science museums


You-pick farms

Lakes and rivers

Local towns

So far this summer we’ve been to an outdoor museum, a wildlife refuge, and hunting for fossils – and we have so much more planned! What’s on your list?!
