We saw this on the Sun/Flier's Explore Howard site and it had us hankering for a road trip:

Clarksville teens Alex Fast and Emily Woodhouse fed dolphins in Sea World in California, had a tea party with teddy bears in the Teddy Bear Factory in Vermont and experienced what it would feel like to walk on the moon at Space Camp in Alabama -- all in one summer.

During a whirlwind summer in 2006, the pair hit 25 U.S. landmarks in two months as they served as hosts for a DVD intended to introduce children to famous and quirky national sites.

The DVD, dubbed "TripFLIX," was produced by Columbia-based Pixel Workshop and released in November 2007.

Fast, now 20, and Woodhouse, now 18, landed the traveling gig by chance, when each impressed Pixel Workshop's co-owner Ilana Bittner during performances at River Hill High School.

Here's a promo video:
