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 about 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
vcacation spots in the United States, those that tell the story of our
history. And nearby, there'll be plenty of out and out fun, too.

fun things to do there anyway) across Rt. 4, and the Everglades down a
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 that

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
