As we begin the 2021 holiday season, now is a perfect time to visit historic homes to see holiday decor and hear stories of how those from history celebrated the season. One of my favorite places to visit this time of year is Historic Westover, one of the most beautiful 18th century homes in Virginia. Located along the James River, visiting its grounds and taking a tour of the home is a wonderful way to learn more about the earliest history of our country with your family.
Tomorrow is Veterans Day. A meaningful way to celebrate our brave men and women of the US Army is to visit the National Museum of the United States Army near Washington, DC. It’s one of the most interactive and immersive museum experiences for kids and adults. Plan your trip today!
While in Los Angeles with kids, don't just see the fictional creatures at Universal or Disney. Visit the La Brea Tar Pits to learn about the historical creatures who once lived there. Tar still oozes from the ground, mere steps from the concrete jungle of LA. Your kids (and you!) will be fascinated by it!
As part of my quest to see every Presidential and First Lady historic site, I visited one of the few sites countrywide dedicated solely to a First Lady, the Edith Bolling Wilson Birthplace Museum. Located in the picturesque town of Wytheville, Virginia, it’s a great place to learn more about this trailblazing First Lady.
