My husband and I have this as our New Favorite Vacation spot...We have brought our children here on several occasions. Someday every one of our 13 children we are hoping to bring here! Feels very sacred place to visit. Love the History and atmosphere here. Great places to eat, and fun things to do! Highly recommend this as your next family vacation!
This is an American treasure chest of history. I had the pleasure of bringing some students here. We were able to enjoy past American history, that alerted our thinking of what the US was like at its humble beginnings. This is definitely a tourist attraction especially for families. The guided tour is excellent. This was the spot of a great battle ground many years ago. It is filled with nostalgia characterizing what was happening at that time. It is worth the time, lines, heat, parking and food. I would do it again. Go online for the specific details.
