Be sure to stop by and enter at
The Apologia Blog (they’re also hosting a fun Science Show and Tell Link Up with The Homeschool Scientist!)
Good luck on winning a ticket! Many attendees are taking advantage of the great room rate (only $75/night) and turning their trip into a family vacation. Tonya of The Traveling Praters wrote an excellent article on Free Area Attractions – be sure to check it out.
Another great resource for field trip ideas is the latest issue of the Washingtonian. Inside they offer a lovely article about the Cherry Blossom Festival (2012 marks the centennial!) and 61 Hidden Gems of DC – this article goes beyond the well known sights and offers quirky alternatives like antiques, sailing, sports events, nature and more.
