We know there are TONS of blogs about Houston. However, when searching for things to do in the city ~ we found that “Houston Field Trips” didn’t bring up much info other than a few museums. Additionally, the majority of links were directed at Public/Private School teachers and administrators or “Group Tours” for adults.
Houston is an amazing city and offers a variety of museums, parks, and events. We are within an hour of 10 State Parks/Historic Sites. There are numerous factories that offer tours and hands on demonstrations. Homeschooling is a wonderful journey that allows our children numerous experiences that are limited in a typical “brick-n-mortar” school setting. As Homeschoolers, even more so as Unschoolers ~ our approach, goals, and preferences often differ from those of school administrators.
Our family wanted to share options for homeschoolers wishing to visit popular locations and a few places you may not have heard of.
