If you’re looking for an educational Texas History field trip near Houston–one where the kids can get involved and come home with lots of stories–you can hardly do better than the George Ranch Historical Park in Richmond, Texas.
They sorta specialize in hands-on education and host a slew of events throughout the school year and during holidays to help your students experience what life was like for one family of Texans–four generations–over 100 years of Texas history.
You definitely don’t want to miss this one! Family season tickets get you in to the George Ranch Museum and two others free all year–as many times as you care to come. It’s an investment worth considering.
