That's an equation that really adds up! An education doesn't only happen in a traditional classroom. Leave those four walls behind because on the Alabama Gulf Coast a classroom comes in all shapes and sizes. One day you may get a lesson in marine biology at the Dauphin Island Sea Lab, complete with touch tanks and a walk through a maritime forest. The next, you and the kids may find yourself exploring a nearly 200-year-old fort and watching re-enactments of some of the South's most storied military battles. Kids learn the most amazing things when they're having fun!

The entire family can enjoy a homeschool vacation or field trip on Alabama's beaches. When the kids ask, "Where are we going next?" what they're really asking is, "What can we learn next?" By spending your morning learning how to create a blown-glass ornament and your afternoon wading through the surf in search of sand dollars, hermit crabs and other interesting sea creatures, you've fully submerged yourself into an interactive and engaging edutainment experience.
