On a Road Trip Adventure across the USA,
it didn’t take us long to figure out that we didn’t have enough time or money to see and do everything.
In every state, I compiled a list of things to do and places to see.
With so many choices, how did we choose?
It wasn’t easy but we came up with a sightseeing plan that include places to go for the city-slickers and nature-lovers in our family as well as sites to see for the history buffs in our family.
By the end of a year-long travel adventure, our family had visited several state capitals and large cities, national and state parks, historic sites and monuments, and lots of places just for fun.
If you’re looking for a list of places to go and sites to see in the US, you’ve come to the right place.
