For school children, there’s no better way to learn Florida’s history than reliving it during one of our extraordinary field trips. Our educational tours offer visits to many of St. Augustine’s most significant historical sites, an assortment of choices for itineraries, and much more.
Bring your students to see first-hand the places you’re discussing in your history lessons. Let them witness the magnitude of the Castillo de San Marcos, the largest Spanish Fort in America and one of the few structures of its kind still in existence. They’ll enjoy a guided tour of this imposing Castillo and gain a perspective of how the soldiers during that era lived and fought to defend St. Augustine.
Also included is a fully narrated Old Town Trolley Tour that showcases 100 points of interest throughout the city. And you may pick two of the following sites to visit: The Old Jail, the Oldest Store Museum Experience, the St. Augustine History Museum or Potter’s Wax Museum.
Our field trips can also include stops at the Oldest Wooden School House, the Fountain of Youth, The Lighthouse & Museum, Alligator Farm and more. And the best part? You can design your own adventure to suit the needs of your students—our experienced planners will assist you in customizing your excursion so it is most beneficial to you and the children.
Adhering to the educational standards set forth by the state, each of our field trips is designed to bring your history curriculum to life. Each participating class will receive a 16-page activities book sent via email as a PDF file. Pre and post-trip activities provide you with educational materials that also entertain. All materials were created by curriculum specialists and are based on Florida Sunshine Standards.
If you’re looking for an unforgettable way to teach Florida’s fascinating history, our tours are ideal. Spend a couple of hours or an entire day exploring all the glorious historical sites in the ancient city. Your students will be delighted, entertained, and most importantly—enlightened!
