Travels in America
Come see America through our eyes.
Our goal is to SHARE and INSPIRE.
Travel America with Us
We will travel within the 48 states in search of landmarks, museums, points of interest, or whatever you and our members find interesting. Then we publish an article with photos and blog about our experiences.
Veteran's and National Memorials
As part of our travels we want to honor our military by documenting any Veteran’s Memorials that we find along the way. We will also be including National Memorials as well.
Above is the lighthouse entrance building which serves as part gift shop, part museum, and part ticket counter. This was my first visit to a lighthouse. Strange since I lived on the west coast most of my life. I can't say that I have always wanted to visit one but...read more
This site is part of the National Parks system and is a remarkable place full of history. It is located on the western side of Fort Smith, Arkansas along the Arkansas River at Belle Point. It is associated with the well known judge - Judge Parker - "The Hanging...read more
This beautiful statue sits in River Park along the Arkansas River. One of the most confusing things about this place is the name. The sign above says Riverpark. The sign over the building has it as River Park. Google maps has it as Riverfront Park. And to top it...read more
So the wife and I had a Friday available to go visit the First Monday Trade Days in Canton, Texas. Don't let the name fool you. This is actually a four day event held Thursday through Sunday on the weekend before the Monday of every month. Which means it is NOT held...read more

On our way to Washington DC we stopped at Natural Bridges in Virginia. As we drove past the area we saw Virginia Safari Park. We did not have time to stop at that time. On our return trip we decided to stop by figuring that we would just drive through the park and see...read more
This was a very unique memorial. It is more of an area than a structure. The part that stands out the most is the statues of soldiers marching through the woods on patrol. These are very eerie in that they are so realistic that you almost expect them to move or talk...read more
As my wife and I were driving back from visiting Washington DC, we traveled through Virginia and saw many signs for Civil War memorials. We decided that it would be a shame if we did not at least visit one of them. Ellwood was the one that we picked by chance. It is a...read more
Living most of my life on the West Coast I have always had the desire to see Washington DC. I have had some chances to see some of it on quick trips previously. On those trips I went to the some of the museums. I never had the opportunity to go up in the Washington...read more
We explore America and bring you our experiences through pictures and articles. Our site is relatively new and as such we are still modifying it as we progress. We would like to get feedback from you so that we can bring you the types of interesting places that you would like to see. Let us know what you like, don’t like, and what topics of interest you would like to see from us. We would love to hear from you!
