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.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing.

We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!

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!
