@hisgoosiegirl:  If you love history… Boston is a great place to visit!!  February might be a little rough weather-wise though.  ๐Ÿ™‚

Well, if you are interested in historic Southern towns I would suggest either Charleston or Savannah. If he’s into military history then Sherman’s march to the sea should be right up his alley.

I liked San Antonio, TX quite a bit. If I could go anywhere, I would probably visit: Disney and LA/San Fran, Colorado, Outer Banks (dog friendly beaches), Memphis/Nashville are always fun, Smokies, New Orleans, and probably take a trip back to NYC again.

Philadelphia area has so many great historical sites. (Not southern history as you mentioned, though) I live near Valley Forge Park (awesome!) and Gettsyburg and of course Philadelphia has so many great historical sites to see! Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, etc. February is definitely not the time to come, though. In that case, I would head south where it is warmer! ๐Ÿ™‚

Charleston SC! i cant rave enough about this city – full of history, (you could visit the uss yorktown or fort sumter) beautiful scenery! bright colors and palm trees, and beaches nearby (about a 10-15 minute drive from downtown).  its a smaller city so you can walk everywhere. Tons of site seeing tours (walking tours, harbor tours, pub tours, ghost tours<- my fav), awesome night life and the southern food is to die for. its absolutely one of my favorite places to go – my husband proposed to me on the waterfront there ๐Ÿ™‚ we have been back several times since.

Washington D.C. is awesome. One of my favorite cities! I visit there as much as possible because my sister lives there and it NEVER gets old to me!

My Fiance and I are HUGE history buffs (history major) and Gettysburg, Pa is such a cool place to go! Great experience and awesome history! And it’s not far from Philadelphia and Washington D.C. either. I also think Pittsburgh is a super cool city. It has a ton of cool history in it and it’s a reallly cool little town. I just like PA in general!

I also really love Michigan! I love nautical stuff and they have some awesome history up there! Same with Ohio in the Sandusky area, very cool Great lakes history! I could be biased because I’m from ohio but that part is pretty sweet.

If yoou’re planning on taking a road trip, I would just hit everywhere up if possible. Michigan might be a stretch, especially Northern Michigan but ohio is right next to PA and wouldn’t take much time at all!

I’m biased toward Philly since I live there.  DC is only about a 90 min train ride from here.  And like others said gettysburg isnt far, about a 2 hour drive.  Brandywine is even closer and has historical significance.  February does suck here but I can’t imagine it being worse than the upper midwest. 

I’m actually going to spend a few days in Boston in october since I’ve never been.  I can let you know how that goes.


If you have any philly questions feel free to PM me.

I’m going to put in a bid for San Francisco! California is awesomely beautiful and full of rich, amazing history. And there are so many fun things to do in San Francisco! There are tons of museums, great restaurants, historic sites, beautiful beaches, etc. And seriously, Alcatraz is one of the coolest places you’ll ever visit, and the tour they’ve set is is absolutely amazing. 

After you explore SF, you can always take a few days to relax in wine country. It’s also incredibly beautiful there, and the wines are out of this world. ๐Ÿ™‚
