When Nerds Travel

Grab a lightsaber, pack a sonic screwdriver and head out into the nerdy universe. Here’s a guide of the Adventures, Trips, Events and Experiences we’ve done, just a small slice of what is out there.

Wayward Adventures

When you are looking for a full adventure, we have an exclusive detailed itinerary for you. Most of the Wayward Adventures are spread out over several days with suggestions for each day. 

Travel to a Galaxy Far, Far Away

Death Valley National Park, CA

Tatooine is not outside your reach. You can experience the desert world right here on earth. Travel to Death Valley National Park and visit several iconic filming locations. Wayward Nerd has created an easy itinerary including several tips on what to pack and a few nerdy places to stop along the way.

Wayward Trips

When you are looking for a quick trip either on it's own or to add on to another trip. All Wayward Trips have a special nerdy appeal but are easy or quick to plan. 

A Strange New World: A Visit to the Vasquez Rocks

Vasquez Rocks Natural Area Park

Vasquez Rocks Natural Area Park is both awe-inspiring with rock formations as well as filming locations for several TV and movies. Most iconic for nerds is the classic Star Trek episode "Arena" where Captain Kirk fought the Gorn. 

To the Batcave!

Come explore one nerd's adventure finding bats and a little nostalgia in the iconic Bronson Caves, the location of the 1960’s Batman TV series’ Batcave.

For when nerds want an experience more than just a nerdy place. 

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter

Universal Orlando Resort

More than just a theme park, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is like walking directly into the books. You’ll find London town with Diagon and Knockturn Alleys, Kings Cross Station with Platform 9 ¾, the Hogwarts Express to ride to Hogsmeade and Hogwarts castle. Get yourself a wand, do a little shopping, cast a spell or two and be totally amazed at the fire-breathing dragon atop Gringotts bank.

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter — Hollywood

Universal Studios Hollywood

A smaller version of their Florida counterpart, you will find the village of Hogsmeade with all the familiar shops like Honeydukes, Ollivander’s Wand Shop, Owl Post and more. And of course, magical creatures with Hogwarts castle towering above.

Star Trek: Exploring New Worlds Exhibit

Museum of Pop Culture, Seattle, WA

The EMP celebrates 50 years of Star Trek with this encapsulating exhibit. There are set props — the very first, original, Captain Kirk's command chair from the original series. Awesome! There are costumes — like Kirk's "Mirror Mirror" uniform. Stunning. And so much more. An excellent way to celebrate 50 years of Star Trek.
