Make sure to call Rubinsohn Travel (215)-886-5200 to help you accommodate the travel arrangements, so you can take the time to read and decide which patriotic city below you would like to visit next Summer.
Freedom Trail- Boston, Massachusetts
The Freedom Trail is one of the most patriotic excursions. This trail is 3 miles long and begins at the Boston Common. The great part about the trail is that it can be picked up at any point along the way. So if you are feeling adventurous, you can begin at the start and follow the trail to the end. But, if you are not up for walking, you can simply pick where to start and finish. The brick path connects 16 of the most historical monuments and sites in Boston. Some of Boston’s most special places include Park Street Church, the Old State House, Faneuil Hall, Paul Revere House and the USS Constitution. You will be able to capture a real sense of the American Revolution after finishing the trail.
Mount Rushmore National Memorial- Rapid City, South Dakota
A must-see place to visit is the infamous Mount Rushmore National Memorial. Standing beneath the 60-foot-tall visages of U.S presidents Washington, Jefferson, Roosevelt, and Lincoln is absolutely breathtaking. Lincoln and Gutzon Borglum began carving into the granite mountainside in 1927 and didn’t finish until 1941. They wanted to promote tourism in the area and now over 3 million visitors come to Black Hill to marvel at this legendary American monument.
Colonial Williamsburg- Virginia
Make sure to put some time aside for this trip, as Colonial Williamsburg is impossible to explore in a day or two – there is simply too much to see! It is the only place that takes you back in time to the dawn of America. Colonial Williamsburg is the “live” 18th century that you get to experience every time you step on their grounds. You can dance, sing, and eat with the 18th century version of our population. Meet the “Nation Builders” – the real life historical figures associated with old Williamsburg, engage with them and experience their life. Colonial Williamsburg also offers carriage rides, so you can ride through the historic era while enjoying the peace and quiet and removing yourself from the chaos of modern-day streets.
Colorado Springs, Colorado
Colorado Springs is known for its 4th of July activities! The city’s population includes about 19% of veterans, so the area takes patriotism to new heights. When you visit Colorado Springs, definitely stop by Adventures Out West. This place allows you to zipline over the Manitou foothills with an American flag on your back. In addition, you can rent from a variety of Jeeps and and go on a Jeep tour. If you want to take a break from driving, hop on one of their segways! Adventures Out West allows you to segway through the Garden of the Gods and experience the scenic views with wind in your hair! If you are tired on being on land, jump in one of the air balloons and experience Colorado from 1000 feet up.
