No matter how great it is to read a book, study a course,
check out the U.S. History Timeline here at America's Best History, or watch something historic on television, it's just not the same as being there. Get out of the house and travel to some of the great vacation spots in the United States, those historic sites that tell the story of our history. And nearby, there'll be plenty of out and out fun, too.
If you can't wait to get into that Philadelphia history,
remember Philadelphia is a vibrant town with lots of sports to see, amusement parks in nearby New Jersey, and an aquarium along the riverfront in Camden. If you're traveling to the center part of Pennsylvania, you can go right by Hershey park (well, almost) on your way to Gettysburg, or stop by all things Amish near Lancaster. Don't let the kids whither away at the mall. Don't let your parents take you to the same spots or tell you you won't like historic travel vacations, too.
Check out some of the most vibrant and interesting locations in the United States here in the Visit America section of americasbesthistory.com, then pick out a couple to visit.
And believe us, there's a whole lot more out there then the ones we've highlighted so far. Over four hundred National Parks, National Monuments, and other NPS sites just to pick out one type. And yes, we count national parks in the U.S. best history genre. Then there's the small gems of history that are Lesser Known that we highlight in our Monthly Spotlights.
The history of our national lands and historic sites remains one of the best ways to learn and appreciate what came before us. Now get out that map, or type a location into your GPS, and Visit America.
I'd say this would be great for anyone from age 12 and up who
needs to know the context of history or the history buff who wants to
be reminded where and when things happened. Recommended.
Very Good Compilation
This was a great refresher for someone who was very big into
my history lessons. Great for quizzing your kids.
