When you’re little, the whole world is your classroom. Not only do children learn tons of new things at school, there are many educational activities you can do at home, and the sky is the limit when it comes to all the things you can learn when you step foot outside your door.
It is true that there are so many things children can learn, but if they aren’t interested and engaged, it isn’t going to stick. That’s where educational adventures come in.
By visiting a new place with your little ones, they’re sure to learn tons of things, and you’ll likely end up making memories that will last a lifetime in the process.
Whether you’re visiting the Phoenix area from out of town or you’ve lived here all your life, there are a few area educational adventures that you simply can’t miss.
Rent an RV
Not only is spending time outdoors fun for children, getting closer to nature can teach them all kinds of lessons. Heading to the park is one way to do it, but you’ll get even more out of your trip if you rent an RV from Outdoorsy.
There are quite a few RV parks you can explore in the area, or you can take a road trip to another RV park in Arizona. A few fun places you can visit include:
- Kartchner Caverns: Stay at Butterfield RV Resort and you can take a guided tour of the cavernsor learn more about caves in the 23,000-square foot Discovery Center.
- London Bridge: Not only can you try fishing, hiking, or boating, you can see the famous London Bridge that was reconstructed not far from Islander RV Resort.
- Meteor Crater: Named after its biggest attraction, Meteor Crater RV Park brings you close to the best-preserved meteorite impact site on the entire planet.
Explore the Musical Instrument Museum
If you want to do a little learning and exploring, a museum is a safe bet, but most kids grow weary of your run-of-the-mill museums. Re-spark their interest in museums by visiting the Musical Instrument Museum.
Not only can you explore the galleries of instruments, you can listen to live performances by checking out their event calendar.
Visit the Pioneer Living History Village
Learning about history is so important. Unfortunately, reading about it can be so boring. Instead of reading about it, experience it at the Pioneer Living History Village.
It includes Nearly two dozen buildings from the 1800’s to explore, and you can ask one of the town’s residents more about what life was like during that time. Interactive displays make visiting the village even more fun.
Learning doesn’t have to mean sitting behind a desk and learning about the world around you from a textbook. Show the kids in your life that learning can be fun!
Make a weekend of it and rent an RV or simply spend an afternoon in the Musical Instrument Museum. You’ll take away wonderful memories and learn something new in the process.
