With Ohio’s rich history, industry, agriculture and the arts you’ll find many places for homeschool field trips throughout the state. That being said, I have a fondness for Southeast Ohio Field Trips.
While I’m not a native Ohioan, I did live in the state for about 18 years and have many wonderful memories of my life and time there. My husband is a Buckeye and his roots run deep. Our life together in Ohio allowed us to travel all across the Buckeye state. We met in the Ohio valley and spent 6 of our earliest years in the Washington Co. area. The beauty of the valley and the friendliness of the people will always mean that the area is home to us.
You’ll find a warm welcome wherever you go in southeast Ohio. The river is wide, and beautiful. While most of the river lies in West Virginia territory you’ll discover many amazing places to visit on both sides of the mighty Ohio river.
I do recommend popping over to Parkersburg and taking a sternwheeler to the Blennerhasset Island to discover the Blennerhasset mansion.
