A couple of weeks ago, we shared some archaeology-themed trips to incorporate into your summer vacations. This week, we’re sharing some tours that reflect our heritage through our built environment, from National Historical Parks to small towns across the US. Using the National Park Service’s heritage travel guides, you will be able to visit museums, historical societies, national and regional parks, and local sites that explore a wide range of themes important to American history.
