Field trips are meant to be educational, insightful, and fun for students and excursionists. If you plan to have a trip that covers all bases, why not take a quick trip to Colorado?
Learning About Culture
Colorado is home to several museums that pay homage to the diverse cultures that make up America. You may want to see the Museum of the American Cowboy in Colorado Springs to learn more about rodeo, and the cowboys that keep this sport popular and alive. Another is the Koshare Museum in La Junta, home to the world's finest Native American art and artifacts.
The Museo De Las Americas in Denver gives us a closer look at the ancient and contemporary arts of the Latino community. Another great place to watch out for during Colorado field trips is the Mizel Museum, which aims to educate the public on the Jewish community, its culture, and heritage.
Nature junkies will love travelling through Colorado's natural parks. One of the most popular is the Rocky Mountain National Park, consisting of 415 square miles of mountains, hiking trails, and campgrounds. Another is the Colorado National Monument, surrounded by rock formations, canyons, and flora and fauna that give visitors a feel of the American West.
Get Creative and More
The Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum in Golden, Colorado is devoted to the art and craft of American quiltmaking. There's also the Fremont Center for the Arts in Canon City and Central City Opera for people who are into the performing arts. Meanwhile, those seeking a glimpse of the holiday spirit may visit Santa's Workshop, a Christmas-themed amusement park in the North Pole (yes, that's what it's called), Colorado.
Colorado has dozens of establishments that will make any field trip a fruitful one. Not only can you appreciate nature and culture up close, but you can also learn a thing or two about the world around you.
