If you take a lot of vacations, you have probably seen a lot of sun and surf, or perhaps you are the type that loves to glide down the side of a mountain surrounded by piles of fresh snow.

However there are several other destinations you may want to visit, instead of the usual, tried and tested vacation spots you’ve been to. One way you can deviate from the usual summer or winter vacation is to go to a place with historical value, and there are a lot of these in America. Preferably this would be at a place that interests you as well as the rest of the family.

There are several kinds of historical sites you can visit, from sites of great battles to historical landmarks that remind you of events from as recent as 50 to 100 years ago. Gettysburg is a very popular spot as far as historical sites go, and is perhaps the most visited in Pennsylvania. Aside from Gettysburg, Pennsylvania offers replicas of 19th century life, with people dressing up and living like it was back in the olden days. Using the technology of the era, these replicas feature exhibits such as candle making and weaving. The list of things you can see and experience is almost endless.

However, there are many other states with sites relating to American history and culture. You can find these places all over the country, and most of them are open to the public in one form or another. You can visit homes of former US Presidents, great writers and painters, and recording artists and movie stars who made their mark on American history. Though you may not think of Graceland as one of the historical sites you can see, it is historic in many ways. This is because you cannot underestimate Elvis Presley’s cultural and historical impact, being the man who popularized rock ‘n’ roll music.

One of the best ways to find sites from history is to look around online. There are different ways for you to research, but you can do it by searching by region or interest. You can also try your travel agent to see what they have to offer you. Suggestions would include vacation packages that are geared towards historical attractions, or packages that allow for other unrelated activities. Regardless of your interests and that of your family, there are many options to choose from. Not only can you have a vacation unlike any other one you’ve had before, you can teach your children a lot about our treasured past.
