The Liberty Bell, Betsy Ross’ House, Independence Hall, and the Constitution Museum are some of the many attractions that this city offers. The city even has colonial re-enactors walking around Independence Hall to truly allow tourists to walk back in time and experience American History.

The city also has several historical attractions nearby such as Thomas Jefferson’s house Monticello and George Washington’s house Mt. Vernon, which are both located in Virginia.
This midwestern city made the cut due to their Gateway Arch, a memorial that commemorates America’s westward expansion. The arch also pays homage to Thomas Jefferson’s role in encouraging people to venture into the West following the Louisiana Purchase, the National Park Service reported. A museum is also opening July 2018 about American pioneers and Native Americans, the Gateway Arch’s tourist site reported.
This New England city is the birthplace of freedom and American political thought. Tourists can see sites that commemorate the American Revolution, such as the Boston Tea Party, Paul Revere’s house, and the Battle of Bunker Hill. Tourists can travel a little outside the city to see the Mayflower and Salem, which is known for their Salem Witch Trials during Puritan times.
Tourists can step back in time to experience the history of Texan culture with two museums, one specifically about cowgirls and another about cowboys. The city also boasts the George W. Bush Presidential Center and Library.
