BALTIMORE — What's the best field trip you ever went on?

Did The Zoo instill a lifelong love of animals? Did a trip to a museum, government building, or local T.V. station inspire the career path you're on today? Or was a jaunt to the local park down the street truly just the best of times?

Now Baltimore students have a hundred options to make their new favorite trip this Summer.

Non-profit Baltimore's Promise, The Fund for Educational Excellence, and 10 major cultural institutions teamed up to create "Field Trip Fridays," offering free trips to youth programs throughout the Summer.

  • Reginald F. Louis Museum
  • The American Visionary Arts Museum
  • The Maryland Center for History and Culture
