Roadschooling 101: Inspiration for the Remote Learner

With back-to-school season in full swing, many children are adjusting to the new normal of online learning. For families who have the flexibility and the opportunity to be remotely connected, many are hitting the road with their books and laptops in tow to explore nearby destinations. In August, over half of family travel was for bookings made within 50-300 miles from origin destination.*

As many activities transition to digital, families are looking for unique ways to keep their kids engaged while fueling creativity.

Airbnb guest Ana and her family have made the adjustment to remote learning and are using this time to safely explore new locations. Recently, Ana and her family visited Host Joelle and co-host Earl’s Downtown BV Garden Apartment in Colorado.

“Our stay at the Downtown BV Garden Apartment gave us some quality family time. My kids enjoyed climbing on the rock wall and all the fun games,” said Ana. “We are so grateful to be able to juggle safe traveling and school work during these times.”

To inspire roadschooling wanderlust, these Airbnb listings offer spaces that inspire creativity and interaction.

Recess Reimagined 

Playtime might look a little different in 2020, but there is no stopping kids from climbing on the walls – literally. Bright pops of color, board games galore, gymnastic rings, and a rock climbing wall are just a few of the fun kid-approved amenities these Airbnb listings have to offer.
