Boston

Just returned from a vacation with the fam. You northeasterners have a lot of history out there! We spent about 5 days there and had a great time. Old stuff in Nebraska might date back to the late 1800s, it's a whole new experience back east. And the seafood! Can't get that here, but I'll take my steak over yours anyday.

I live in an area surrounded by history ( Philadelphia, New York to name a couple) You take it for granted after a while.

Moved to DC from LA a few years ago. I absolutely love the history here. I miss the great weather back home, but can’t get enough of our own rich history here.

I live 40 minutes north of Boston in Southern Maine. Lots to see and do around here and with lobster under 7 bucks a pound (fish market prices) right now you can go nuts and not break the bank.

her of course. I've been trying to find a happy medium that we both agree on, and it's looking like Tennessee, but it will be a few years.

Hmmmmn. Im a history buff, always have been. Was lucky enough to take a trip to the NE back in the 90s.

Bunker Hill, Plymouth Rock, Old North Church, USS Constitution and Nantucket Lightship.

Seeing Constitution under sail is on my bucket list.

3x a week for work I drive by Andersonville, its in the middle of nowhere, but well worth a visit if in the area.

I also drive on Henry Talmadge Elrod Memorial Highway, Medal of Honor recipient, Wake Island defender.

Macon GA is the final resting place of John Birch.

Lots of history everywhere you go, sometimes you have to look for it.
