Just returned from a vacation with the fam. You northeasterners have a lot of history out there! We spent about 5 days there and had a great time. Old stuff in Nebraska might date back to the late 1800s, it's a whole new experience back east. And the seafood! Can't get that here, but I'll take my steak over yours anyday. :wink:

I live in an area surrounded by history ( Philadelphia, New York to name a couple) You take it for granted after a while.

Moved to DC from LA a few years ago. I absolutely love the history here. I miss the great weather back home, but can’t get enough of our own rich history here.

I live 40 minutes north of Boston in Southern Maine. Lots to see and do around here and with lobster under 7 bucks a pound (fish market prices) right now you can go nuts and not break the bank.

I love seafood AND steak...and everything else ! !
I was born and raised in Alabama. WE TALK FUNNY.
My accent comes and goes with my audience.
I DO speak Mustang, however, and I need no interpreter here.

Hmmmmn. Im a history buff, always have been. Was lucky enough to take a trip to the NE back in the 90s.

Bunker Hill, Plymouth Rock, Old North Church, USS Constitution and Nantucket Lightship.

Seeing Constitution under sail is on my bucket list.

3x a week for work I drive by Andersonville, its in the middle of nowhere, but well worth a visit if in the area.

I also drive on Henry Talmadge Elrod Memorial Highway, Medal of Honor recipient, Wake Island defender.

Macon GA is the final resting place of John Birch.

Lots of history everywhere you go, sometimes you have to look for it.

I drank way to much Mango beer in some dive on the waterfront in St Augustine.

All I really remember is the really cool Miller High Life globes on the bar.

The pilgrims were late to the party.

Florida's where it all started and you guys from up north really do talk funny. :)

Saint Augustine: 1565
Plymouth Rock: 1620

My son went to school at B.U. and my grandparents lived and were married in Roxbury so I have a little personal history with Boston too..but love the city just hate driving in it..lol.



Go to St Augustine every spring for vacation - probably a couple of the best bars I've been in - the Trade Winds and the Oasis (down A1A)...,


Both places are great to visit,

They might talk funny up north but Boston is seriously neat to walk around and see all the history there and have lunch in a pub that's been there for 300 years and still looks the same.

Kinda like Europe that way. It's cool, but it doesn't quite fit what you're used to seeing in the US because everywhere else has been built up more recently and doesn't have that same aesthetic and weight to it.

Being a history buff, I love the occasional trip to New England area: old world buildings, seeing where major events in American history took place....and of course the seafood. Love Mystic Seaport. Will be in New Hampshire area next month for black bear hunt so probably work in some sight seeing. One thing about the area, you can drive a couple hours and see 4 states.

Of course, here in Kentucky we have some history. Boonesborough for instance. I have a lot of family connection to early settlers and the Revolutionary War. One ggggg Grandfather was scout for Col. Crockett, later captured by Indians, escaped with help of Indian maiden named Moonglow who he married and settled the small community of Moon Ky. Another ggggg Grandfather, Lt. James Felix McGuire died along side Israel Boone in the last revolutionary battle in Ky, The Battle of Blue Licks, and his name is on monument there in the park where it took place. Born in Ireland he was one of the pioneers who helped Daniel Boone blaze the Wilderness Trail and build Fort Boonesborough.

Living and working in Reno, Nevada, was sent to Massachusetts in 1976, the year of the bicentennial. Every weekend I would drive somewhere to see some historical event. It was cool to see. A few years later I went to England on vacation. I thought things were old on our East coast. Not even close.
