About Are We There Yet?
Most of the listings in Are We There Yet include recommendations for making reservations to visit an attraction. By and large these recommendations are intended for group visits and programs.
Unless otherwise stated, attractions listed in this guide do not require reservations for individual or family visits. Reservations may be required, however, for individuals to participate in special programs or classes. Always call the attraction in advance if you have any doubt.
The State Index pages give direct access to our listings of educational and cultural places of interest within the relevant state. The Index for any state is available from every page.
Nearby: Each listing includes a list of attractions near the one you are reading about. Near is relative to the population density of the area. For instance, in a city near could be a few blocks away, while in the countryside it may be a thirty-minute drive.
Are We There Yet? is the child of a guide written to solve a specific problem: where can a teacher or camp counselor take a group of kids for an entertaining, yet rewarding experience? There was no guide that catered to groups, and existing guides to places of interest had a touristy flavor that did not adequately convey the educational value of the places they were describing.
The first book featured places of interest in and around New York City, to a radius of about 60 miles. The author went to great lengths to include the smaller museums, historic sites and nature centers that many people had never heard of. Of course, the famous places were included too.
The guide was an instant hit with schools, libraries, camps, senior citizens groups and others in the tri-state area. Though Are We There Yet? was written primarily for groups, parents found the book in libraries and began ordering it. The next edition was written with families in mind, as well as groups.
Next came a Philadelphia edition. Like the New York book, this guide extended well beyond Philly's city limits, covering an area from Harrisburg to the Jersey Shore and from northern Delaware to central New Jersey.
The natural evolution from printed guides was the Internet. Here users can freely access information about hundreds and hundreds of great places to visit and things to do. Are We There Yet? went online in 1996. We hope you will join us and tell your friends.
Are We There Yet? the Ultimate Field Trip Resource contains information about public places of interest gathered from a combination of personal experience with these places and information provided to us by each place. We have presented this information as clearly, accurately, and honestly as possible and will assume no responsibility for discrepancies found to exist between any aspect of our descriptions and actual conditions at the places described.
We do, however, assume full responsibility for providing a useful tool for individuals, parents, educators, and group leaders interested in getting out and enjoying and learning from the wonderful resources that surround us.
We expect that few, if any, errors will be found. Those reported to us will be quickly corrected.
This on-line is a wholly private effort. Are We There Yet? does not represent any place of interest described and does not solicit funds from any of the museums, nature centers, historic sites, etc., or any not for profit place of interest. The pages on Are We There Yet? are not the official home pages of the places represented. Where a place of interest has an official site and we know about it, Are We There Yet? furnishes a link which opens the official site in a new page, independent of the fieldtrip.com domain.
