In case you missed it, earlier I had written an article on field trips every El Paso kid went on back in the day. On the list I had:

  • The Gene Rodenberry Planetarium
  • The Coca-Cola Vending Plant
  • El Paso Zoo
  • El Paso Courthouse
  • Insights Science Museum

And while most of you all agreed these field trips were awesome, so many of you mentioned some other great field trips that I don't think I went on!

One of the most mentioned field trips was:

The El Paso Symphony Orchestra

Lots of El Pasoans fondly remembered going to symphony whether it was at the Civic Center, the Plaza or- as one commenter said at a place called "Liberty Hall". One of my favorite comments though, from Lluvia said:

Symphony (my teacher fell asleep behind us and snored loud.. psycho ass Mr.Alvarado)

I couldn't believe that I had forgotten field trips to Cohen Stadium! This was so much fun, because we got a behind the scenes look at the stadium and then we got hot dogs!

I don't think I ever went on a field trip to this historic site, but I have done a ghost tour here.

I do remember going to the Museum of Art on a field trip! We got to check out some great art and then we ate lunch in the courtyard outside.

This one is interesting because I don't think I ever went on a field trip here so I want to know- what would you do on this field trip? Was there a show? Tell me!

If you have a field trip that you fondly remember, let us know in our App Chat! I still maintain that field trips are wasted on kids!
