One of our favorite things to do as a family is to explore historical sites on our travels. We took a trip to Charlotte and got down and dirty with some local history sites and even got to see a live archaeological dig, for example. You don’t have to go far afield to get into history, though. Some of our favorite spots are in our local area. You can find history almost anywhere – your courthouse, historic battlefields around your town or county and much more await you. We spend several days each month just learning what’s gone on within our own little area of the country and it’s always amazing what we haven’t learned yet.
