History #BlogFlash2012 Day 27

I love visiting historical sites when I travel. The summer before I had American History in high school I was able to visit my aunt and visit some of the many great historical sites in Boston and New Hampshire. I've been to Louisa May Alcott's house and walked around Walden Pond. One spring break in college my mom and I traveled to New Mexico to see what inspired Georgia O'Keeffe to paint. While museums are wonderful, I really like to be able to visit the sites where events took place and see the story from what remains. I love experiencing the traditional cultures of a place and learning the history of the people who live there. There is something about having that connection to the past that gives me hope for the future.
