A street in Philadelphia


Philly is perhaps one of the most historic cities in the United States, as there are many monuments and important moments in history available to visit in the city. For starters, you can see the original Liberty Bell, a symbol of the United States’ freedom. You can also tour Independence Hall, the place where the Declaration of Independence was signed, and the Constitution was created. Boathouse Row is also a beautiful sight of boathouses built in the middle of the 19th century that still stands today.

For the movie or pop culture lovers, visitors can run up the iconic steps from the original Rocky movies and take a picture with the Rocky statue, built for Rocky III.  From these monuments, you get a beautiful view of the city skyline and the Benjamin Franklin Parkway.

There is also a museum for people that want to learn more about the significant event that leads to the American Revolution.

While in Boston, you can also hear about the history of Paul Revere’s ride and see the church where the famous signal lanterns were hung, starting the American Revolution at the Old North Church. Nearby, you can visit Salem, where the infamous witch trials were held at the end of the 17th century.

New York City

NYC was once the capital of the United States, before Washington DC took the title, yet New York manages to still be a record-breaking historical city. Of course, you can visit the Statue of Liberty on Ellis Island, the island where more than 12 million immigrants came to gain new lives in the United States. You can also travel on the Brooklyn Bridge, a symbol of NYC’s architectural innovation. Visitors also experience the breathtaking 9-11 museum and memorial, as well as the new World Trade Center in one of the biggest cities in America.

New Orleans

Founded in 1718, NOLA holds the record for most historical districts than any other US city. Visitors can see major battlefields, like the Chalmette, or see the spectacular St Louis Cathedral, built in the late 1700s. This cathedral is the oldest in the nation. You can also experience the New Orleans Jazz National Historic Park, as NOLA is the original location of jazz music, brought to life in the 1900s.
