No matter how great it is to read a book, study a course,
check out the U.S. History Timeline, 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. Just remember, if you visit that mouse in Orlando, there's St. Augustine on the way, Cape Canaveral along the coast, and the Everglades a bit further south.
Check out the NEW BOOK from the staff at America's Best History. Makes a great gift for yourself or a history friend, student, or family member. In easy to read, print, and search Digital format or Paperback from Amazon.com and more.
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.

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 pick out a couple to visit. 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.
