Preservation is experiencing historic places when you travel.

Where are you headed this weekend? America’s towns and cities are filled with historic neighborhoods, streets, monuments, and structures that shed light on our nation’s historic past.

Experiencing them for yourself is one of the best ways to learn about the value, and joy, of preservation. You can learn more about America’s past when you travel to these destinations:

  • Historic Hotels of America. This network of 235 hotels has faithfully preserved their history, architecture, and ambiance.
