Monumental Trips

George Washington, the Grecian gods and Booker T. Washington were before our time, but we can study their achievements through monuments erected in their honor. Man-made and natural monuments make great destinations on any vacation.

To honor Americans who died fighting for our country, the U.S. government has erected memorials to the soldiers of Vietnam, Korea and both World Wars. Some of the most impressive are showcased in Washington D.C. Tripspot.com provides a link to many military monuments. Most sit along the National Mall, including the soon-to-be completed World War II monument.

The Wild West

Old Forts, State and National Monuments of New Mexico outlines the highlights of the New Mexico desert, including Fort Selden, the childhood home of General Douglas MacArthur. The Lincoln State Monument, just east of Capitan, N.M., hosts a reenactment of Billy the Kid's escape every August.

And don't forget Montezuma Castle National Monument in Arizona. The visitor center and ancient ruins combine to make a memorable experience.




The stoic faces of Mount Rushmore form one of the most recognized symbols of American history. Sculptor Gutzon Borglum carved the busts of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln into the South Dakota rock. Visitors will appreciate the access provided by the new Presidential Trail, a boardwalk that winds close to the monument.

African American history buffs should check out African American Monuments, Museums and Memorials. The site highlights monuments to events like the Boston Massacre and people such as Booker T. Washington and George Washington Carver.
