Distance learning has been difficult for children everywhere across the country. We simply are not built to learn exclusively online. However, one benefit that online learning has offered to many is the ability to travel on school days. Now you and your family can enjoy a vacation getaway to Hood River and not put off important classwork. Here is how to have an educational journey to Hood River:
History Museum of Hood River
One of the best ways for your family to have a great time while still learning is by visiting a local museum. Hood River is home to the History Museum of Hood River, a very popular museum in the area. Unfortunately, while the museum itself is temporarily closed due to COVID-19, they continue to offer online exhibits for you to learn about. Share with your children the wonders of the many items found here at the museum. Pictures and detailed accounts of items found in the History Museum of Hood River are a great way for the kids to take a break from their formal education.
Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area
Not all educational attractions are museums. You can offer an entertaining visit for your family by visiting the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area. Hood River is known for its beautiful surroundings. The river gorge is a great place to see everything from exciting hiking trails and colorful fish found in the water. Beautiful waterfalls are on display deeper in the gorge for adventurous travelers. Learning about our beautiful wilderness is especially important now that the western states have experienced severe forest fires this year.
Western Antique Aeroplane and Automobile Museum
Not all museums have to be about historical moments in the area. The Western Antique Aeroplane and Automobile Museum is one such place with beautifully restored vehicles on display. Your family will learn all about these incredible works of art that date back to the 1920s. The museum is open daily from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM, making it easy to plan a trip. You can find the museum at 1600 Air Museum Rd in Hood River.
