At Colonial Williamsburg, you can really immerse yourself in colonial times and experience the life and the struggles that the fore fathers of USA have gone through. Characters even dress and talk like those during colonial days!

Another city that is deep-rooted in the history of USA has got to be Philadelphia. Not only can you see famous monuments such as the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall, you can also enjoy a walk in the historic district where you can visit quaint architectures that are closely linked to the people’s fight for freedom and democracy.
