There is so much amazing history all around us that I would be missing an opportunity if I didn't give at least a taste of some of the wonders you can discover, quite possibly right on your doorstep. Even if history isn't your thing, I think everyone can appreciate the beauty in some of the old structures and stories they hold within - often they fall within beautiful surroundings with plenty around them to see and do. Who knows, maybe you will gain a newfound appreciation for all of the incredible history behind some of the best tourist attractions.
