Someday I hope to spend a year or two traveling. My husband and I both love to travel, so it is possible we may do this in the future. Until then, I enjoy researching destinations and putting together resources like these California Virtual Field Trips.

I have visited ‘The Golden State’ a couple of times in my life. It isn’t my favorite vacation destination, but there are some amazing sites to see and things to do. 

If I ever make it back to the West Coast, California specifically, I’d like to see Alcatraz Island. Where would you go if you visited California?

Until then, I’m thankful for virtual field trip options that allow me to see places I might not otherwise get to visit.
