Holiday fun can be more than visiting one expensive venue after another. If you make your excursion an educational journey as well as an exciting adventure, you can have almost as much fun planning your holiday trip as you will have experiencing it. What types of animals are native to the locale you'll be visiting? What's interesting about the history of the area? After you arrive, museums, parks, walking tours and libraries offer lots of rich opportunities to learn more. Giving your holiday an educational slant can be a fun and economical way to enjoy a well-rounded trip.
