Yosemite National Park (California)

One of the top must-see National Parks is Yosemite National Park in California. From its jaw-dropping waterfalls to its towering sequoias, this park has something for everyone. With its location just a few hours away from San Francisco, it’s an easy add-on during a Northern California vacation. And don’t miss the charming Mariposa Museum and History Center while you’re entering or leaving the park.

Levine Museum of the New South (North Carolina)

The Levine Museum of the New South in Charlotte, North Carolina is a unique museum that looks at the growth of the piedmont region after the Civil War. From farming to textiles to banking, this museum highlights the explosive growth and the racial and economic challenges that have faced the Queen City in recent history. If you're planning a visit to Charlotte, put this museum on your must-see list!

Sherwood Forest (Virginia)

After writing about the Virginia Capital Trail last week, I’ll be reviewing many of the stops along the trail in the coming months. Several battlefields and historic homes are along the route, including the home of our nation’s 10th President, John Tyler. In my quest to visit all of the Presidential and First Lady historic sites, I knew I had to see it in conjunction with the Capital Trail. His home, named Sherwood Forest, is a peaceful place for your family to take a break while on a bike trip. Read my new review today!
