    My favorite field trip memory was a trip to the Carnegie Science Center… Maybe 4th grade. Oh, and there was the trip to the Pittsburgh Aviary…. I could go on, and on. Too bad I can’t win the camera! Go for it readers!

  2. Chrissy Allen

    Favorite field trip was to 6 mile cypress in Ft. Myers. I think it was 7th grade science and we walked thru Cypress Swamps in jeans and tennis shoes …scary but super fun!

  3. Christy

    We used to go on field trips ALL the time, but my fondest field trip memories were in 5th grade a trip to Kennedy Space Center and about 8th grade a trip to Six Flags Georgia. The best thing about private school was the great trips we used to go on.

  4. Danielle Caruso

    I remember a field trip I took to St. Augustine. It must have been the first trip I took with my own camera because I must have a whole photo album filled of pictures from just this one day trip. Brings back very good memories!!

  5. Jenny

    I remember going to the zoo when I was little. We’d take our bus to the park, pull out our brown bag lunches and juice boxes and play play play until it was time to go through the zoo. The St. Louis Zoo is awesome so we’d ride the train and go through the Children’s Zoo and pet the Koala Bears, snakes, hedgehogs, etc. It was great!!

  6. SuZ

    OOoohhhh!!! I sooo need this, my camera just crapped out on me!!

    My fave field trip was to Epcot. My dad came with me and we spent the whole day together. 🙂 🙂 🙂

  8. Adrienne Gordon

    Mine is getting to go to the metroparks zoo and getting a behind the scenes tour.

  9. Claire

    My favorite field trip was our eighth grade trip to San Francisco. That was a long way from Tampa, Florida! I’m still not sure how our chaperons managed us. We saw the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz and all of the other great sites, but our celebrity sighting was the best memory–Woody Harrelson!

    On another note, I still love Lunchables, especially the pizza kit.

  10. Carol

    We went to the Planetarium in NYC, and I always remember the dark room with the starry sky. Lots of fun!

    I used to LOVE field trips (even the ones to the roller skating rink) – That was the best part of the school year! I remember going on one in middle school, which was truly rare, and we went to the famously pink Don CeSar Beach Resort in St. Petersburg. I have such great memories of the trip – We got to see behind-the-scenes in their kitchen with a tour from the chefs themselves, hear all of the legends and lore about ghosts roaming the resort’s halls (and pretend we’d all seen one), and had an overall great time learning about the management of such a large place. Did you know that the color of the Don CeSar is trademarked? I do now 🙂 The trip will be imprinted forever!

  13. Amberlayne Sealy

    remember how the teachers would hold the upcoming field trip over our heads to behave?

  14. Becky

    Mine was learning about our local estuary by exploring Charlotte Harbor on a pontoon boat. We saw dolphins and caught jellyfish.

  15. Allison Howard

    The best field trip I went on was the 7th grade trip to New York City! I can not imagine being one of the teachers who had to go with a bunch of homonal pre-teens and keep track of them all in the Big Apple. I remember seeing all the fake purses and watches being sold. I went to China town and bought the cutest trinkets there! It was a fond memory, but kudos to the teachers who went with us!

  16. Abbey

    Favorite field trip from elementary school would be Meadowcroft Village. I remember the zoo from high school.

  17. Abbey

    And I totally forgot when we went to the Baltimore aquarium in 4th grade. That was the most fun. Mom was one of the chaperones and we went on a paddle boat together in the inner harbor.

  18. Amanda

    How could I have forgot the Baltimore Aquarium! That was an awesome trip.

  19. Lori

    My favorite field trip was to the Sunken Forest, Fire Island, Long Island, NY. I think it was 6th grade and we had to take a ferry there

  20. Lisa

    My favorite field trip was in 8th grade, it was an overnight and we went to Atlanta and visited the King Center, Atlanta’s Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historic Site; the Atlanta Underground and Stone Mountain! Best Field Trip EVER, hands down.

  21. Andrea

    I loved my school, because we always went on field trips. I have so many memories of our class going on a field trips. The one memory that sticks out the most was in the 4th grade we went to The Egg Performing Arts Theater in Albany. We saw Peter Pan live and I was mesmerized by the show. I remember siting in my seat in anticipation of what was going to happen next and how they were bringing the store a live in front of me. I talked about it for weeks after and never forgot it.

  22. Kathy Scott

    In 5th grade we were hiking in the Idaho mountains when there was a severe thunderstorm. Major scary.

    When I was in 6th grade we went to the shine circus. It was a lot of fun except for the bus breakig down.

  25. Lisa G

    I don’t remember going on many field trips when I was young,the only one that I can remember was to a ‘PET'” milk company to see how milk was put into cartons lol.Ah,those were the days,no cameras for me back then,I just had to rely on my memories.

  26. Paula Hafner

    When I was a kid, I lived near Orlando, Fl. We used to go on some great Field Trips. Once we went to Gator Land. They had all kinds on alligators, snakes and crocodiles. Mom gave me a huge lecture on not climbing up on fences or sticking any body parts through any fences. They had this huge old gator there. We got to pet some baby gators in the nursery area. I even held a snake. Mom wasn’t too happy about that 🙂

    I loved the zoo. A boy bought a straw hat in the gift shop and it blew in with the polar bears. He tried to climb the fence to go and get it. The boy was stopped and the bears had a great time with the hat.

  29. Kristen

    My most memorable field trip is from 6th grade. I was living in Florida and we went to Lithia Springs. It’s a natural hot water spring with a nature trail and conservatory. It was amazing! I hope to one day go back with my children. We were able to swim with the fish in the spring, go on hikes and do archery, and got to meet all kinds of Florida wildlife!

    I must have been in 1st grade and they told us we were going over to a teacher’s house. I forget what they said we were going to do. Well it was April Fool’s Day and as we were getting on the bus, they surprised us by letting us know we were going to go see Charlotte’s Web. I remember how excited we all were.

  33. Sherri B.

    Field trips were the best part of school…lol! We had lots of field trips when I was in school. From the 6th grade on, we went to the State Fair each year. It was a blast!!! All we had to do was be back at the bus on time…the rest of the day was ours!!! Times have surely changed! Thanks!

  34. Tanya

    One of my favorites was going into Manhatten to see a Broadway play, once I hit middle school it was an annual trip. For a few of the plays, we would wait until the audience left, and move up to the front, and would get to meet the actors and actresses and ask them questions. It was a bunch of fun…plus we got to eat at fun restaurants…it was always a great day!

  35. Tanya


  36. Monique Rizzo

    Mine is the road trip we took to California along the coast when I was 7 years old!
    Thanks for the chance.

  37. Christie

    One of my favorite field trips was to an old museum with a wooden Cigar Store “Indian”. The old codger museum guide gave all the girls “Indian Princess” names. Mine was Princess Rosebud.

  38. Christine Sarkauskas

    My favorite field trip as a kid was in 8th grade where we got to go to Niagara Falls. It was an all day event. I felt like such a grown up. We even got to eat on at the resturant that goes in circle and you can watch the falls.

    I will never forget spending the day with my friends; laughing and being a ” grown up “

    My fave field trip was a trip to Washington DC in 5th grade. It was a long 3 night trip and so much fun being that it was like a slumber party with my best girlfriends for 3 days. The sights were amazing and it was awesome to see the constitution/ declaration of independence/ original Old Glory flag, amazing trip all around!

  42. Tari Lawson

    I remember taking a field trip to Smith Memorial Playground. Now I know a playground sdoesn’t sound so exciting but this one is truly unique. The thing I remember most was this huge wooden slide. It was enclosed in a building and is similar to a bowling lane with a bump in the middle. 6-8 kids could slide at one time. It was so much fun.

  43. Kristi C

    My best field trip memory was an eighth grade trip to Six Flags. We had so much fun that day. Nothing like being surrounded by friends and having a good time.

  44. Mami2jcn

    I remember visiting Washington’s Headquarters in Morristown, NJ when I was in elementary school. It was really cool seeing the mansion where Washington and the soldiers stayed during the Revolutionary War, complete with all the knick-knacks and decor of the time.

    My favorite field trip memories are from a long time ago. The best one i remember was a trip to the Wildlife Preserve in our area .we got to see animals we normally do not see up close a very rewarding experiance

  47. Amber G

    I loved our 3rd grade field trip to the zoo!

  48. Crystal F

    I remember going to the Biltmore House when I was in the 6th grade. The only thing I remember is being in the little cafe and seeing a mom breastfeeding her baby. It was my first experience with breastfeeding. I can tell you the boys had a ball with that. lol Thanks for the giveaway!

  49. Amanda

    I loved going to a nature preserve in grades 1-8 we would learn so much.

  50. elizabeth p

    Best field trip ever was to the World of Coke, CNN and Underground all in Atlanta GA.

  51. Michael

    I recall our first (and thusfar only) trip to Canada – back then the most advanced cameras were either too bulky/expensive or low quality. I would love to go back to the same region better prepared to capture the true experience! 🙂

  52. Jen

    My favorite memory from my youth was taking a trip to new york city with our art society group. We saw a show, went to central park, got pizza and did a ton of shopping, not to mention two trips to some awesoem art gallaries!

  53. Lori Hart

    We used to go to the Oakland Zoo a lot as a child. I remember them having a snake out and he pooped on one of my classmates. Not so funny for the fellow student, but therest of us got a kick out of it.

  54. DJ

    One of my fave field trips was going with my class way back in the 80’s lol. My mother and aunty came too and it was a lot of fun!

  55. Amanda

    I had a direct love of field trips as a child. It was a break from routine & added much needed adventure to my already huge imagination. I remember going to the Krohn Conservatory in Cincinnati. I thought this is an amazing place full of plants & wonder. I also remembered it to be enormous . Yet when I went back as an adult & realized it was three rooms! It amazed me how my perception had changed. Oh, for the love of field trips!!!

  56. Dana

    My most favorite field trip was in 5th grade. We went to the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh. I can remember getting our photo taken in black and white and then getting to create a piece of art work with it. I think that going to the art museum at such a young age had some type of influence on me wanting to become an art teacher. I love the arts and students need to go on more art related field trips.

  57. Jennifer B

    My most favorite field trip as a kid was going to the Denver zoo!

  58. Louise Gilbert

    My favorite field trip memory was going to Barkerville BC. We all gathered on to the bus. Thought the bus ride was great just because I lived in walking distance to the school and never rode a bus. It was hour and half trip there to the historical town. There was so many thing to see there:)

  59. Suzanne K

    My favorite field trips were the ones where we went snow skiing!

  60. carol y l

    I used to live back east so when I was ingrade school our class went to Mt. Vernon. George Washington’s house and estate were lovely. I even took pictures of it and put it in a scrap book. My classmates enjoyed it, too, and it is fun to look back at those days! What bothered me was that they have their tombs there and it looked like the top of George Washington’s was not on straight or like it had been opened, and as a kid that really bothered me!

  63. Jodi F

    I remember the field trips when my mom would come as a helper. Those were always the best ones. She would pack extra snacks for us. The one to the museum was the best. Because she was with me I could wander off with her and see the things I wanted to see.

  64. rob

    the only field trip i can remember was to a park near the Fox River in Illinois in 8th grade, it was fun getting out of school.

  65. Matt D

    Hello! My favorite field trip as a kid was in 5th grade. All semester we learned about finance, and what it meant to have a job/career in real life. Then we would apply for different career/positions. The teacher would choose what position we got and then we were off to the most amazing place ever, Enterprise Village in Largo, FL. At this place we would work in our assigned position/career, mine was the lawyer, one of the most prestigious jobs, where we would get a paycheck every hour or so. Then we would accumulate the money and use it to purchase goods with a check. We had to maintain a balance in our account and we couldn’t spend more than we had. Since that day i learned to love finance … and i was such a saver then that i had like 20 dollars left in my account that i just lost … haha. I think that all children should have an experience like this one where they are put into “real life” for a little while, earning money and balancing check books. It was a blast!

  66. Ant Pea

    when I was a kid, I went on several school field trips, usually on a bus. Almost every year, wherever we went, there was a chance to purchase sourvenirs at the end of the day. I would always buy my mother something – many of those special little things things I have since found stashed among her personal belongings after she passed away and we were cleaning out her house, our old home. Bittersweet memories and valuable treasures. As another note, I usually got myself a live treasure, once a small turtle, once a chamellion lizard, life span of these pets ranged from 2 weeks to 2 months. Why did they torture those poor little critters by selling them to children? But, what a ball it was being a kid!

  67. Kay Fischler

    My favorite field trip was in Junior High. We went to the Tillamook Forest and planted fir trees in the Tillamook Burn Forest. What a wonderful thing to do!

  68. Rita G

    I went to the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia and was so excited to get to walk through a human heart!

  71. Jill Myrick

    My favorite field trip was to Dillsboro.
    We left early that morning and traveled to Dillsboro on a train, stopped, saw the sights , had a picnic and traveled home. I had never been on a train or out of town other than to visit family. So I loved every minute of it.
    Thank you so much for the chance to win.

    Don’t get me wrong I love the zoo, but I was unfortunate to enter a grade every year when they decided that that year they will go to the zoo. Needless to say I took a major field trip to the zoo five years in a row. I would have liked to go to other places as well.

    Actually the field trips I enjoyed the most were the ones I went on with my kids and their school class field trips
    We once went to the Toledo Zoo and had a blast-I was in charge of 4 kids and my own daughter-talk about needing eyes in the back of your head lol it was hectic but tons of fun

    I didn’t much enjoy field trips when I was a kid, they were much better with my kids and grandkids. However, I dod remember a trip to the West Coast that we made when I was 8. My father was transferred out there, but couldl’t find a place ato live. So we returned to the Midwest. One bright spot was a visit to the zoo. while there. Sincwe then I’ve lived all over the country, but somehow ended up on the West Coast. Guess what! Now I’m retired and I became a docent at the very same zoo I remembered from my childhood. Oh, and I take my grandkids on field trips to that zoo, It is much changed and for the better, but when I am in the oldest part of the zoo I still remember.

  93. Kelly

    In 3rd grade, we went to visit a farm and a mansion on the same day. The mansion was pretty spectacular–presidents had stayed there, I think Helen Keller had stayed there. The farm, by comparison, was sort of a let down. I don’t remember much about either visit… except for the souvenir shops! I bought a beaded heart necklace at the mansion and a cow noisemaker at the farm. My parents thought I could have done a better job shopping. LOL.

  94. Fran Welch

    We went to New York Ciry and the Chase Money Museum. They had this large rock cut to look like a wheel. On the island it came from this was worth 10,000 cocnuts or a wife.

  95. Mommy2Bears

    I remember going to Wet n’ Wild (waterpark). It was fun and we played all day. I got home and realized that the sunblock washed off. Early on. I was fried and spent the night aloe’d up. It taught me a very important lesson to reapply, reapply, reapply.

  96. Jammie

    I do not recall to many field trips from when I was younger. I remember when I was in middle school our last day there before we moved to the high school we had a lock in and all slept in the school it was scary when it was time for lights out.

    I actually just experienced one of the best field trips of my life…with my 10 year old daughter who is in the 4th grade. We went on a trip over to St. Augustine, Florida this week to learn the rich history of the oldest city. I learned so much and completely enjoyed my self…even though I am a parent this field trip had a huge impact on me and my daughter! This is my best field trip memory so far! 🙂

    When I was in 5th grade, my class went by train to see the Florida State Fair. During the parade, I was in the front row because I was short. People behind me kept pushing forward , so it was hard for me to stay out of the parade route. It’s a good thing I did, or one of those giant Budweiser Clydesdale horses would have stepped on my foot!

    We had lots of field trips when I was a kid. One of my favorites was the trip to Williamsburg. It was so much fun to watch them re-enact how the original settlers did things. That’s also when I learned that cinnamon sticks were edible (kind of!)

    A field trip memory of mine isn’t that good. I remember for a senior trip we went rafting and I (who cannot swim a bit) ended up falling into the river. Luckily, a boy scout (really) class mate was near by and I was “saved”. Even though I had a life vest on, I was too scared to be of real help. Thankfully, there were no cameras about.

  124. Renee C.

    As a teen we got to go to an amusement part as part of our Senior Trip. So far my kids have not gotten anything quite that cool, my son got to visit a watershed, and my daughter a “chuck e. cheese” type place. My son’s favorite field trip was to the symphony last year and my daughter really enjoyed the field trip to the art museum.

It was amazing, and I will never forget the wonderful experience I had on my trip!

    One of my favorite field trips was in 4th grade when our class went to Colonial Williamsburg. We had a blast all the way there, during, and all the way home. I’m sure the bus driver didn’t have a good time 🙂

    I have many favorite Field trip, but I think my #1 Field trip was my Senior trip. I had the best time ever. It was special because all the other field trips I had went on there were bunches of parents, and on the Trip to Washington D.C we only had 4 teachers who went with us and were able to walk around these huge Malls and historical sites all by our selves. It meant we had freedom and that a couple weeks after the Senior trip we would all be going our separate ways and may not see any of our class mates again or for a long time. I haven’t seen have the people who went on our senior trip since Graduation. That trip was the BEST Field trip ever!

    Our Senior trip was to an amusement park…they closed the park this day except for schools. The year before we went they had so many schools that it was very croweded. But we went ahead and decided to take the trip. It ended up that there were only two schools that booked the year we went. It was like having a whole amusement park to yourself. It was so much fun.

    When I was in the first grade we to the pumpkin patch right before Halloween. My mom came with us. When we got there, my teacher or any of the other parents could find any pumpkins. My mom wouldn’t give up and she finally saved the day by finding the right place in the patch where all the great pumpkins were.

    I wish I could remember specific details, but when I was five, I remember that my school in Korea (it was a pretty small school since it was for Americans) took a field trip/picnic to a huge park/open field. My schoolmates were flying kites, eating Korean meals, and just simply having a nice, relaxing time.

    One field trip I remember was a trip to visit Mackinaw Island here in Michigan. I spent a lot of summers up in Mackinaw City, but never went to the Island- so it was so much fun to be able to do that with my friends from class. It was awesome going on horse drawn carriage rides, seeing a cool butterfly house, and eating delicious Mackinaw fudge.

    We went to Mark Twain Caves in IL. and it was so creepy and I got chased by a bat. It was awesome.

    I still remember my very first field trip. It was to the zoo and my Dad came with us which I loved because he was the only Dad that came. I got to pick 3 friends since my Dad was one of the helpers coming. What do I remember most? Right after we ate lunch we went to look at the gorillas and there was one right at the glass we were next to and he looked at us and then ate his poop…and then I threw up!

    A 6th grade field trip to Gettysburg stands out in my mind particularly. Both my dad and I have always been really interested in Civil War history and he chaperoned that trip. We wandered the battlefields together, he providing little-known facts here and there, me heel-in-toe, soaking it all in. In that sense, the trip was educational, but also emotional; one of our finest bonding moments.

    In 7th grade I went to St. Augustine, FL for a field trip. We visited an old fort, museums, the fountain of youth, and shopping downtown. It was a great day. My mom always chaoaroned my field trips. Although we didn’t always get along, I don’t ever remember not enjoying having her there. Now that I’m a mom I want to be there for my children’s field trips too. My daughter’s 2nd grade class is going on their field trip in a couple of weeks and I’m probably more excited than them.

    As a kid, I loved field trips. I grew up in Michigan, so we once took a field trip to the Henry Ford museum and saw the factory where some of the very first cars were made, we saw models of the very first cars that were in existence, and I remember thinking just how cool that was. Field trips were one of my favorite parts of school as a kid 🙂

    My favorite field trip moment was when we went to the museum. It was my favorite because I bought this beaded necklace that looked like a doll. I loved that necklace so much. I wore it all of the time and was devastated as a kid when the thread broke and all of the beads gushed to the floor. 🙁

    I remember in elementary school taking a trip down to Radio City Musical Hall on December 15 (I’m not telling the year – I don’t want to date myself!). This was when they would show a movie AND then also do the Christmas Spectacular show. We saw 1776 and the Christmas Spectacular. On the way home, it started to snow. Mom (who chaperoned) and I trudged home through the snow about 3/4 of a mile from school to home in our shoes (and the snow was about 4-5 inches by then). If you knew my mom, you’d know why the walk home was almost as impressive as RCMH – Mom was not a play in the snow type of girl, especially not without boots! What a memorable day that was – and it was sooo much fun!

    When I was in the 7th grade we had a field trip to the zoo. One thing that I will never forget is having a snake wrapped around my shoulders. I was petrified but determined not to show how frightened I was.

    On one of my field trips, we went to a place famous for their arrowheads. I picked one up and examined the heck out of it. The next day, my picture was in the paper…and I sure had an intense look on my face!
