USA Historic Sites
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 nearby, and an aquarium along the riverfront in NJ. If you're traveling to central 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 in front of electronic media. Don't let your parents take you to the same spots or tell you you won't like historic travel vacations, too.
