Historical Adventure for the Family

If you have searched for a vacation that is both educational and enjoyable, a historical vacation is perfect for you and your family. To give your kids with a experience to enjoy themselves as well as to make themselves engrossed with the history of the country, this is the best option.

There are numerous destinations around the country which can be suitable for your requirements. In order to make a proper decision of choosing the right ones and covering the right ones as much as possible, the following paragraphs will provide you with enough information and help.

Historic Jamestown and Jamestown Settlement

Site of the first permanent settler formed English colony is at Historic Jamestown. A visit to the historic wonder will ensure visitors with tours around the excavations and structures that remain from the inception.

Thanks to the Archaeologists working at various locations many artifacts have been unearthed. Jamestown’s famous glassblowing industry is also depicted, with costumed workers applying their skills in the same manner as the early craftspeople.

Located nearby is the Jamestown Settlement, featuring many artifacts from the settlement, inclusive of a 17th century child’s hornbook, a wooden roll, clay marbles, and a small stoneware jug dated 1590, which supposedly was given to Pocahontas.

The settlement is best known for its re-created fort, the Powhatan Indian Village, and three ships that are open for exploration. In the fort, kids can try on armor and play old-fashioned games such as quoits and ninepins. They can pound corn and play a Native American game called cob darts in the Powhatan Indian Village.

At the Riverfront Discovery Area children are welcome to climb aboard the ships and into the tiny bunks where the sailors used to sleep. They can also try the steering device that was used before wheels came into fashion and learn about early methods of fishing.

Historic Alexandria in Virginia

Located in proximity to the borders of Washington, D.C., Alexandria is one of the best places for a family historic vacation. Here, you will have the opportunity to explore the history and culture of the United States. A great place for the small ones, Old Town Alexandria offers several tours especially for children and hosts a number of fun festivals and special events scheduled throughout the year.

George Washington's Mount Vernon, also located in Alexandria, is another interesting and fun place to spend the day exploring the life of the first president of the United States.

Additionally, just a short metro ride away, you can find Washington, D.C. where it offers a world of things to enjoy.

Boston

Boston, Massachusetts, is flooded with visitors every year and for good reason: It's partly a walkable historic park in itself (especially the Freedom Trail) and partly a modern waterfront metropolis (the "Hub of New England") with no lack of things to do once darkness descends. Further, Fenway Park, one of America’s most hallowed baseball stadiums, often becomes a destination in itself.

Gettysburg, Pennsylvania

Perhaps no other place can conjure such powerful ghosts of blue and gray, smoke and battle, loss and death as Gettysburg: It was along the ridges near this small city that the Civil War reached a crucial turning point. Today, it's the country's largest battlefield shrine and a must for anyone interested in Civil War history and just history of the United States itself.
