The landscape of this country is shaped by geology, weather, and water, but people have left their mark on it as well. From the Gulf Coast to the Pacific Northwest, the rocky shores of Maine to the sandy beaches of southern California, and everywhere in between, the history of this land is tied up in the history of its people.

Luckily for outdoor enthusiasts who are also history buffs, there are incredibly places to visit where you can learn and play. National parks, historic lighthouses, iconic battle sites, evidence of the Wild West, and Native American sites are located on preserved land. The history documented in these places is as interesting and important as the natural beauty found there.

Here’s a few of our favorite historic sites.
