When it comes to educational tours, the possibilities are virtually endless. From walking, the Freedom Trail in Boston to visiting all the monuments and museums in Washington D.C. the United States is full of history; each place you visit essentially has a story! Many parks offer endless beauty as do the hiking trails that our settlers once traveled long ago. These parks include Yosemite, Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. The Redwood Forest should be included as well. Not only will you be able to see landmarks such as “Old Faithful,” but also you can look at the continental divide and some of our grandest mountain ranges.
Do not forget the many historic towns along the Chesapeake Bay. There is a cruise offered that travels down the James, Potomac and Delaware Rivers. Maybe going down to the “Big Easy” is more your style where you can venture on and explore the famous cemeteries that Louisiana has to offer. New England is not only full of historical landmarks and places, but offers beautiful sites as well. Depending on what season you will be traveling, you will surely not be disappointed. Autumn is one of the most beautiful seasons in New England, you can view all the leaves on the trees changing colors and visit the cranberry bogs. In Massachusetts, you can visit Sturbridge Village and get a real idea of what times were like in the early 1900s.
