There are so many things to see across the United States of America that make for excellent detours when on family road trips or exciting expeditions with friends. One of the best things to do when planning a trip across the USA is to set a course for historical places to visit.
There is always someplace unique and historically significant to give you the opportunity to further your education no matter which direction you’re traveling. In Arizona, there is the popular Grand Canyon National Park. In California there are a plethora of museums, national parks, and unique fixtures of American history.
Some of the most historically significant places are in the northeast, where our nation first started. For anyone interested in seeing our colonial history and learning about it up close, take a trip through Massachusetts. There you can explore the wonders of Boston and its many well-preserved pieces of our history. There is The Freedom Trail, the Boston Tea Party Ships and Museum, the USS Constitution Ship “Old Ironsides” as well as the USS Constitution Ship Museum, the Paul Revere House, and so much more.
In New York, the New York Harbor holds another large sliver of our history. There you can visit the Ellis Island Immigration Museum as well as the much loved Statue of Liberty. There is also the Intrepid Sea-Air-Space Museum. New York also features a wealth of presidential and historical museums.
In Oregon there are the Lewis and Clark National and State Historical Parks. In Oklahoma there is the Oklahoma City National Memorial. In North Dakota there is the Theodore Roosevelt National Park and the Knife River Indian Villages. All across the nation there are signs that tell the story of the United States of America.
