Historic Sites

Thomas Jefferson's MonticelloThere are many historic destinations that aren’t just a museum and also not a battlefield. Some sites in this category include historic homes (like presidential homes), historic locations (like the building where the Declaration of Independence was signed), or homes of other significant historical figures. Although these sites are also usually a museum too, they’re listed here in their own category since many people really like visiting actual historic structures and locations.
