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.
We were actually drawn to this area by the “ghost town” of Ludlow and found this monument. One of the dark days of American history here when in 1914 striking miners were massacred by the company they were striking against. The victims...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!
