American History comes to life with a journey to the country’s most significant historical sites! In Washington, visit one of nineteen Smithsonian Museums and Galleries to learn about the historic, cultural, and political development of the United States. While you’re there, stroll by the towering Washington Monument, or discover the African American Civil War Museum.
Travel to Boston and take a Harbour Cruise to learn about the city’s rich past, or follow an 18th-century-costumed guide along the Freedom Trail to hear stories about the American Revolution, or experience a Battlefield Tour in Gettysburg. In New York, take the ferry to Ellis Island, gateway to over 12 million U.S. immigrants, or spend a reflective afternoon the 9/11 Memorial Plaza, and consider the implications of such a tragedy for the future of American History.
