It’s Time for a Virtual Field Trip

Virtual Field Trip

This is a bizarre time for us all. While it may be scary, we should remember how fortunate we are to have access to this amazing online world. It offers endless opportunities for virtual travel if you know where to look. So many incredible places are stepping up to offer a free virtual field trip, keeping us on the go even while we’re stuck at home.

Some of these virtual field trips have always existed, but many others are venturing into uncharted territory. Either way, we’re excited about all this buzz around virtual travel. And I, for one, am grateful for this long list of fun “places” to take my kids during the [home]school day:

Other Cool Stuff

There are so many ways to explore this vast world without ever setting foot on a plane. Sure, we prefer the real thing but that’s not always possible. During times like these, virtual travel is a great alternative. Make the most of this time at home and travel as a family—you’ll never regret the time spent together!

At Travelnitch, we create opportunities for shared learning, so parents and children can explore the world together.

Virtual field trip

Virtual field trips play such an important role in our lives. It has the ability to change us for the better. It’s an experiential education that teaches us how to feel, think, act, and react in positive ways. Travel fosters creativity, builds confidence, and teaches us all to be more tolerant. My own kids benefit from travel every time we hit the open road. No amount of money can buy those life lessons.

Travelnitch is inspiring the next generation of explorers. We believe travel is a wonderful way to ignite the imagination and get kids excited about the world. However, we need your help to make this possible. Please spread the word and support our efforts to raise citizens of the world. Let’s go on this adventure together!
