Omaha is Large and home to some of the Largest places on earth. You'll want to make this a stop while visiting the mid-West...Lincoln has the largest artifacts of roller skates in the nation! Surprise!! To think about the old skates with keys, inline skates, hockey skates, etc., It is wonderful someone is being attentive to the history. Interesting fact - the US National Championships for ROLLER sports is also in Lincoln, NE. Thus, the museum focus.
Portsmouth is a port city on the Piscataqua River. Nearby, the 1855 North Church presides over downtown’s Market Square; Prescott Park has beautiful riverside gardens and plenty of boat docks. Northwest of Portsmouth is the former research submarine USS Albacore - it resides in a nearby park.
Jersey City is in northeastern New Jersey. Its eastern waterfront faces the Hudson River where it meets Upper New York Bay. Liberty State Park has panoramic views of the Manhattan skyline, the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, the former immigrant gateway. The park’s Liberty Science Center features interactive exhibits, live animals and an IMAX Dome theater. Bars and ethnic eateries line downtown’s Grove Street.
The Finger Lakes is named for its series of long, thin lakes, and known for its vineyards. On Cayuga Lake, the city of Ithaca is home to Cornell University and its Johnson Museum of Art, showing ancient and modern art in an I.M. Pei–designed building. The surrounding area is marked by high gorges, many with dramatic waterfalls, including Taughannock Falls and Buttermilk Falls.
Fargo is where the Plains Art Museum exhibits regional and Native American works in a revamped old warehouse. Modern and vintage are spread over two hangars. Cheer your favorite N. Dakota football team in the Fargodome, then visit the Red River Zoo.
Cincinnati is experiencing another boom, this time in its historic Over-the-Rhine district, which is being transformed with significant investments in infrastructure. Changes include a new streetcar that connects downtown to the neighborhood, and an expansion of the district’s art scene.
Tulsa is a city on the Arkansas River, in the U.S. state of Oklahoma. It’s known for its art deco architecture, mostly in the central Deco District. Landmarks like the Philcade and Philtower buildings reflect a 20th-century construction boom fueled by the prosperous local oil industry. The Philbrook Museum of Art is housed in an Italianate villa that was once the home of a local oil magnate.
The origins of Salem’s name are the subject of some debate. Some historians believe its name is biblical in origin, borrowing the last five letters from the word Jerusalem, and serving as an Anglicized version of the Hebrew word shalom, meaning “peace.” Others believe it was named by missionary David Leslie, who named the city after his hometown, Salem, Massachusetts. Either way, Salem was officially named in 1850.
Pearl Harbor is a U.S. naval base near Honolulu, Hawaii, and was the scene of a devastating surprise attack by Japanese forces on December 7, 1941. The day after the assault, President Franklin D. Roosevelt asked Congress to declare war on Japan.
Providence was founded by Protestant pastor Roger Williams in 1636, and the name means “divine care.” Williams was a campaigner for religious liberty and had been expelled from the Massachusetts Bay Colony for his radical religious and political beliefs (he argued for the division between Church and State). Williams and his followers purchased the settlement from the Narragansett Indians, and Williams named it in gratitude to “God’s merciful providence unto me in my distress.” He later said, “I desired it might be a shelter for persons distressed of conscience.”
Harrisburg began as a ferry stop and trading post, run by John Harris Sr., and colloquially known as Harris Ferry. Briefly renamed Louisbourg after Louis XVI of France, the town's founder (and son of John Harris Sr.) John Harris Jr. insisted the town be renamed after his father, the first white settler in the region—and so, Harrisburg was founded.
Columbia is the feminized version of Columbus, and was named to honor explorer Christopher Columbus. Columbia became South Carolina’s capital in 1786, and, apparently, there was significant disagreement over what to call the new city. The other contender in the debate? Washington. One 1932 historian observed, “There seems no reason for the name ‘Columbia,’ except that it was, at that time, popular.”
ready to head to the Ingalls' Homestead to continue "living like Laura?" The tour guide takes you all over the town as well as many different parts of the county side to explore things related to Laura Ingalls Wilder that you won’t be able to find otherwise. One of the favorite parts is being able to get out and walk alongside the Silver Lake and around the Cemetery.
The Grand Ole Opry, an American Icon and Nashville's number one attraction, is known for creating one-of-a-kind entertainment experiences for audiences of all ages. It's where unforgettable moments happen every week...moments like the night Trace Adkins revealed a tweet inviting his pal Blake Shelton to become a member of the Opry.
Park City lies east of Salt Lake City in the western state of Utah. Framed by the craggy Wasatch Range, it’s bordered by the Deer Valley Resort and the huge Park City Mountain Resort, both known for their ski slopes. Utah In town, Main Street is lined with buildings built during a 19th-century silver mining boom.
Burlington is a city in northwestern Vermont, on the eastern shore of Lake Champlain, south of the Canadian border. Downtown, shops and restaurants line pedestrianized Church Street Marketplace. On a hilltop overlooking the city center is the University of Vermont, founded in 1791. Its campus is home to the Fleming Museum of Art, showcasing international art.
Olympia, Washington was named after the nearby Olympic Mountains, themselves named for Mount Olympus of Greek legend. The mountains were named in 1788 by explorer John Meares, who exclaimed, “If that be not the home where dwell the Gods, it is beautiful enough to be, and I therefore call it Mount Olympus.”
Many things are overlooked in West Virginia, but the State Capitol is not one of them. Possibly one of the most beautiful capitol buildings in the country, the dome is the perfect addition to the gorgeous mountain landscape. Lots of rich history too.
James Duane Doty, a territorial judge and land speculator, named Madison after President James Madison in 1836. Doty, who co-owned 1000 acres of land where downtown now stands, lobbied aggressively to have Madison declared state capital, even going as far as trying to bribe legislators with high quality buffalo robes! Doty also named the streets in this newly established town after the other 38 signers of the U.S. Constitution.
