14 Amazing Field Trips Delawareans Took As Kids…And Should Retake Now

One of the best parts about living in a small state is that you can get anywhere within its borders in under 2 hours. As a kid growing up in Delaware we took field trips that were “far away” by our standards, but meant that we still didn’t have to cross any state lines, which made our parents a lot less anxious. Here are some classic field trips that Delawareans took as kids.

Please note, The Hagley Museum and Delaware Museum of Natural History are temporarily closed.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate

Are there any of these trips that you distinctly recall taking? I also vividly remember trips out of Delaware to Hershey Park, Philadelphia Zoo, the Inner Harbor, Independence Hall, the Franklin Institute, the Herr’s Factory and more!
