HISTORY: HOW TO USE THIS CATEGORY (Fun Facts)

histFF6

Ben is right.  It’s also true that those who know at least a few tidbits of historical information about whatever they are seeing or doing, find that their vacation is more meaningful than it might have been otherwise.

 *************************************

Here in the ‘Fun Facts’ Category you will find information about History.

These blogs are each presented in a ‘bullet point’ style that is designed to give you just a few pieces of information about things that you will potentially see and do on a road trip in America.

Either these tidbits will:

help you get the most of your visits, (if you don’t need too much to be satisfied)

or

whet your appetite for more information (about the things that you find really interesting and want to know more about).

Either way, you’ll discover more about yourself and where your interests lie.
