Education Vacation

Passport to Texas from Texas Parks and Wildlife

School’s out, but that doesn’t mean learning comes to a grinding halt. Keep that gray matter bubbling all summer long when you take the family on a Texas education vacation.

From an educational standpoint, Texas is rich in history that really ties into the curriculum that’s being taught in the public schools, and there are a vast number of attractions in Texas, where students and families together can actually see and experience part of that history that’s being taught in the classroom.

David Teel is VP of Planning and Development with Texas Travel Industry Association, which operates the website

It contains thousands of educational attractions, destinations, events that should be of interest to parents, teachers, school kids… And basically the function of this website is to promote the intrinsic educational value of travel in Texas.

When you type your destination into the search box, and click search, various destinations are returned. Refine your search by age, interests, cost, or more. When I did a search for Fredericksburg, Wildseed Farm topped the list.

The children seem to love the walking trail because they can see the butterflies on the flowers.

Tomorrow, we take an Education Vacation to Wildseed Farm in Fredericksburg.

That’s our show…For Texas Parks and Wildlife…I’m Cecilia Nasti.
