Homeschool Enrichment Adventure Road Trip to Niagara Falls
We have absolutely loved bringing our community together on a whole new level for the last two years. We call these trips our Homeschool Enrichment Adventure Road Trips ♥ (HEART) ♥ and today, we are announcing our next Homeschool Enrichment Adventure Road Trip to Niagara Falls!
Why Travel with Us?
- Relax. We take care of all the details! All you have to do is arrive on site! Everything from hotels, to meals, to excursions have already been handled, right down to the gratuities! Vacations are meant as an escape from the daily grind, right? So let us coordinate it all and take care of the details.
- Have Fun. With less time spent on planning itineraries, meals, accommodations, and activities, you have more time to have fun and really dig into the educational element beforehand! You can relax, unwind, explore, and discover!
- Make Friends. Traveling with other homeschoolers is a great way to have fun and make friends! We homeschooling families understand each other, have similar goals, and love sharing our educational experiences and good times together! For many of our families, this is the best part of traveling with us – there’s always someone to do things with, laugh with, share stories with, and make memories with. Need someone to take your picture in front of a monument? We are there for you! On our very first trip we had over 100 homeschoolers travel with us to Fort Caswell, NC, and over 150 homeschoolers traveled with us to Space Camp. There is a small group that has been to all of our events, so there is also a reunion feel. We have been blessed with great children of all ages on our previous trips! Thus far, all of them have felt like they met a dear friend (or several friends!) that they want to keep in touch with! Building life-long friendships is something we all want for our children. And since most of the time they are from other parts of the country, they often become pen pals too.
- Enjoy Smaller Crowds. We purposefully travel off-season so we can visit venues when they are quieter and less congested. Traveling off-season also allows us to take advantage of discounts that we pass along to you and your family.
When: September 16-19, 2018
Where: Niagara Falls, NY – United States Side
Total Amount Due: August 10, 2018 (You may be able to join us after that date, but that will be based on room availability.)
This will be our first HEART trip that features us staying in an upscale hotel. We are thrilled to announce that our families will be staying in the Doubletree by Hilton in NY. The hotel is located in downtown Niagara Falls along the Niagara River. We will be within walking distance of Niagara Falls! (For those activities that require driving, all parking fees are covered in your package.) Amenities include a heated indoor pool and fitness center.
All fees associated with these excursions are included in your package. When you arrive, we will have a bag for you with all of your tickets and passes.
Niagara Falls State Park.
We will be experiencing every aspect of the Niagara Falls State Park! This 400-acre state park is the oldest state park in the United States! And we will get closer than you ever thought possible to the grandeur of the Falls.
The Tower’s Observation deck extends out over the Niagara Gorge and is the only place in the Park to view both the American and Horseshoe Falls at the same time!
Maid of the Mist.
We board the Maid of the Mist, the one and only tour boat fleet whose captains have safely navigated the mighty waters of the Niagara Gorge for over 100 years. This iconic boat ride carries up to 600 passengers and operates on the U.S. side of the Falls. Hear the crashing waves. See the breathtaking views. Soak up every drop of powerful spray aboard the Maid of the Mist. We will journey along the Niagara River to the base of the American and Horseshoe Falls into the heart of one of North America’s most powerful waterfalls and witness the thundering roar of 600,000 gallons of water. We will plan this as one of our last adventures of the day because we will get wet!
Cave of the Winds.
Before we descend into the Niagara Gorge, we will learn how Nikola Tesla harnessed the power of the Falls to create alternating current. We will get to experience what Niagara Falls looked like before it was a park and witness why people from around the globe have been drawn to the edge of the Falls for hundreds of years as we travel through The World Changed Here Pavilion. You will be outfitted in souvenir sandals and ponchos that will do their best to keep you dry before descending 175 feet into the awe-inspiring Niagara Gorge. After we exit the cave, we will navigate a series of wooden walkways that will bring us to the “Hurricane Deck.” There we will be within feet of the crashing Bridal Veil Falls and will be surrounded by tropical-storm-like conditions–even on the calmest of days.
Niagara Adventure Theater.
Discover the story behind the thunder (presented in large format film)! Large Format Films are designed to educate and enlighten as much as they are to entertain. They offer us a powerful teaching tool that is easily integrated into existing curriculum. This spectacular film takes you back to the days when First Nation peoples worshipped the thunder spirits and when the first European encountered this wild wonder of nature. Meet the daredevils who challenged the fury of the Falls, from the Great Blondin, who completed a death-defying tightrope walk over the river in 1860, to Annie Taylor, a 63-year-old school teacher who became the first person to go over the Falls in a barrel and live to tell the tale.
Niagara Power Vista.
Here we will experience a seat-gripping virtual reality ride, hands-on experiments, and the power of nature. We will discover the energy of New York, the geology of Niagara, and the argument between two electricity titans. And we will have the chance to design a dam, operate a power grid during a storm, and walk through a turbine. And a high-tech virtual ride will take us plummeting from the sky and into the Niagara River, shooting through the penstocks and swirling around a spinning turbine, and then zipping at high speeds along high-tension power lines across the landscapes of New York State! This is definitely something you don’t want to miss!
Niagara Falls Underground Railroad Heritage Center.
The Niagara Falls Underground Railroad Heritage Center is brand new. It is an experiential museum that reveals the authentic stories of underground railroad freedom seekers and abolitionists.
Lockport Locks Cruise.
We will experience “Life in the Past Lane.” We will cruise a portion of a 363-mile waterway between the Hudson River with Niagara River and the Great Lakes and an important part of American history. Our fun and informative cruise will take us past five of the original 1800’s locks. Three million gallons of water will fill Locks 34 & 35, the only double set on the Erie Canal, and raise our boat 50 feet. You’ll pass under Lockport’s “Upside Down Bridge,” Lockport’s “Big Bridge” (the widest bridge in the U.S. at 299 feet wide), through the “deep rock cut” and under lift bridges. The lively narration by the Coast Guard Licensed Captains is also accompanied by crowd-pleasing canal music which was popular during the 1800’s.
Lockport Cave and Underground Boat Ride.
Lockport is an integral part of the industrial history and the making of the western interior. Learn about Lockport as an industrial and business center and experience a very unique underground trek through the history and geology of the Niagara area.
Old Fort Niagara Day Trip.
This fort offers us a chance to step back in time to an era when great empires struggled for control of North America. We’ll visit original 18th century buildings, enjoy incredible views, and take part in an exciting living history program. The Fort’s Visitor Center offers introductory exhibits filled with original artifacts and an award-winning 16-minute orientation film. Don’t miss the Fort’s original War of 1812 Flag. Inside the Fort, we’ll tour original buildings where Native American, French, British, and American soldiers lived and worked from the 18th to the 20th centuries.
(Optional) Add-On Excursions Available
Erie Canal Zip-Line.
For those who are adrenaline junkies (like Wendy), you can zip-line over the Erie Canal at speeds up to 40 mph on the Niagara Zipper. You’ll soar over the Erie Canal basin gorge 85 feet above, crossing over the historic waters of the Erie Canal and back! This add-on is only available September 16th, so be sure to arrive early if you register for this event.
NOTE: Participants must weigh between 80 lbs and 240 lbs and must be between 4’8″ and 6’4″ for safety reasons.
Ages 14+ = $27.50
Children up to 13 = $22
Old Fort Niagara Overnight Experience.
Experience the life of a soldier by spending a night at Fort Niagara. This overnight experience offers the ability to get a taste of living at the fort. You will take part in a musket demonstration in which you will learn the skills practiced every day by the soldiers living at Fort Niagara. You will play the games that kept people entertained on this frontier post and learn the other non-combat duties that made up a soldier’s day. Before bed, there is a “weird tales walk” where you will learn some of the stories and folklore surrounding Old Fort Niagara. You will receive breakfast the next morning as well as a guided tour of the fort. Children must be at least seven years of age, and we must have three adult chaperones on this trip at all times. This program includes breakfast (oatmeal with toppings) and a pre-bed snack (apples and hot chocolate). Food can be modified based on dietary needs. Max of 30. This will be the last night of our trip (September 18, 2018).
Price for overnight experience per person = $55
Each night after dinner, we will have a group event in the banquet hall. One night we know we will have a huge game night. Be sure to bring your favorite games and we will have a table set up for it! Something else we are seriously contemplating is a talent show (probably for families not just for the children)! We will make the final decision about what activities we will be doing after dinner with those families who are traveling with us. Just know this is what makes our trips different… we always put an emphasis on bringing families together!
The all-inclusive price per person is $775 with a minimum of two per family. The price includes the registration fee, one hotel room per night (September 16 -19, 2018, meals (Sunday, Monday & Tuesday dinner, Monday & Tuesday breakfast AND Monday & Tuesday offsite lunch), all group activities. and all parking.

We have never been to NY, and would be thrilled to see the Underground Railroad museum!
What a fabulous, once in a life time trip! We have seven kids but not all of the would go – our oldest is married with kids of his own, the next oldest has a full time job and I’m not sure if he would be able to go. Out of the youngest five I would want all of them to go! It would be a great ‘whole family’ trip but I don’t know how that would happen. But I would do my best to get as many kids to go as I could!
This looks so fun!!
I would love to win this trip! I have always wanted to vivst Niagara Falls, but, have never been. It would be so nice to get away with my husband and kiddos too. We have had a rough time this past year, it would be nice to regroup on this trip.

What an awesome deal. I have always wanted to visit here!
Wow! Looks so cool!
This is awesome! I would love to take my family on a trip like this one.

THis sounds like an incredible trip. I would love to do this with my son, to learn with him and bond! Hopefully we can make it happen.
We have been planning to take our thirteen year old to Niagra Falls for a long time… this may just be the time!
Wow! This couldn’t be more perfect as a culminating event for learning about the Underground Railroad and the Erie Canal! So much rich history!
Great prize! 🙂 My kids would so be up for another long field trip!
This trip sounds incredible! I would love to take my three children to Niagara Falls before we move away from the East Coast next year!
What an awesome idea, I love this! I also love the opportunity for everyone to enter to win tickets. What a blessing!
This sounds like so much fun!!!
This trip looks amazing! What a great idea! This has been a dream of our family!
How do you enter to win?
My children would go with me.
This is awesome sounds like a great trip
It sounds like amazing trip.
This would be an incredible trip!
Wow! What an amazing opportunity and giveaway! Seriously crossing my fingers on this one. And, also pleased to have found a great resource in this Hip Homeschool Moms community. Looking forward to digging in and seeing what gems I can find!
This looks like a wonderful trip!
Would love to go on this trip!
This sounds like an amazing trip! We would love to go. There is so much to learn and see!
This sounds SO fun and of course, educational at the same time. Perfect! I would love to be able to show my 4 kids Niagara Falls. I’ve been there once when I was younger, but I know my children would love it, especially my nature loving 13 year old. ❤
I would LOVE to win this trip. We were planning a vacation to Niagara last year, but my uncle had a heart attack and two stokes and is dealing with eye cancer, and we became caregivers. I would love to be able to take my 3 kids (the ones still at home) on this trip to say thank you for all the help they give me as we caregive!
I’ve always wanted to go to Niagara Falls and would love to take our kiddos!
This looks like a great trip and I love that everything is included! I’d love to take my whole family.
We’d like to go because we’ve never been anywhere for fun as a family. We’re a larger family, so it’s hard to plan (and afford) this kind of trip.
This would be an amazing trip. I would love to win. We have always talked about going to Niagara Falls however, it just hasn’t happened for one reason or another. My kids (1 son, 1 daughter) and I love water falls. There isn’t a better one than this either.
What an amazing trip! I would love to go.
I want to stay in the fort!! ?
We would LOVE to win! We’d have to figure out who all would come since there’s 5 of us. It would probably end up being me and the kids.
WE would love to win to go on this trip – we were just reading about niagra falls today and we would love to see it! The trip sounds like such a great time and experience to have – my husband, myself and our two kids would be attending. *fingers crossed*
This looks so fun- just like space camp last year!
The kids and I would love to take daddy on a special trip. He works hard for us to school at home.
The trip sounds amazing!
Wow! Looks like fun!
This is a great field trip! I have twin girls who would be excited to join! ?☀️
I plan on attending with my granddaughter in Sept! This would be amazing to get a free trip! I always wanted to return to Niagra Falls. See you all there!
Donna and Serenity (7th grade)
We look forward to meeting you Donna (and Serenity… what a beautiful name)!
Such an amazing contest. It’s like a vacation in my mind just imagining it! I would love to take my 3 boys, age 9, 10, and 13. It would be the adventure of a lifetime!
I was taken on a surprise trip to Niagara Falls for my birthday and I would love to take my children to experience this wonderful of the world!
What a great idea!! We would love to visit the falls! We’ve never been so far north, so that alone would make for a fun trip.
This trip sounds awesome. I noticed the deposit date has passed. Is it possible to get payment breakdown and suggestions on travel to meeting site? I’m unsure if i can swing cost (single mom), but I’d like to try.
