8 Amazing Field Trips Every Northern Californian Took As A Kid…And Should Retake Now

If you grew up in Northern California like I did, you remember going on field trips. If you had an older brother or sister you knew which ones were on the horizon. Luckily, we live in a part of the state where we can enjoy anything from nature hikes to science museums. Pick your poison, we’ve got it all here for kids of any age. Maybe it’s time you stopped by one of these places again, for old times sake. You might even learn something this time.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

You don’t have to be a kid in school to enjoy a field trip. Pack a lunch and throw the kids in the car. Then head out and make some family memories.
