Of all the different stops and destinations throughout our travel, some of my favorite are Presidential Places. I really enjoy American History, and I love giving my children a glimpse into our country’s past.
There are COUNTLESS places that could be on this list! It’s always exciting to visit president’s birth places, libraries and monuments. And then, of course, the places where they’ve made history. I highly recommend that when you’re traveling you try to incorporate some of these locations into your stops.
Here are my 20 favorite Presidential Places to visit:
- The White House in Washington D.C. (duh, I had to include this one!)
- Mount Vernon, Virginia- home of George Washington
- The Freedom Trail in Boston, MA
- Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C.
