Do you want the local scoop on the best places to go before heading out on vacation? Join the homeschool Facebook page of the destination to which you are travelling and pick their brains. Probably better than any travel website, homeschoolers know the most fun, interesting and educational places to take kids. These may be places that aren’t on the top of a tourist list of activities to do but insiders know these hidden gems. Homeschoolers appreciate the value of hands-on learning and field trips.

For example, we are planning our annual vacation to New England. Within minutes of posting a request for field trip ideas on the Massachusetts Homeschooler Connection Facebook page, their helpful responses came flooding in. I told my husband that now we need several months in New England to do all these awesome things! Thanks MA homeschooler! XOXOXO
One of the things I love most about the homeschool community is how generous we are sharing our knowledge, ideas, and excitement! We are a true community of passionate life-long learners!
