Travel Back in Time

How would your family like to travel back in time like Marty McFly in "Back to the Future"? Fortunately, it is a lot easier than climbing into a time machine. There are "living history lessons" all around the country. You can visit blacksmith shops and one-room schoolhouses, reenact history, and see what families did before televisions, iPods and computers.

Autumn is the perfect time to walk around these historical villages and there are lots of family-oriented activities and things to do. Here are a few of our favorites:

Mystic Seaport, Connecticut: http://www.mysticseaport.org

Jekyll Island, Georgia: http://www.jekyllisland.com

Connor Prairie, Indiana: http://www.connerprairie.org  

Old Sturbridge Village, Massachusetts: http://www.osv.org

Plimoth Plantation, Massachusetts:

Cape May, New Jersey:

Lancaster, Pennsylvania: http://www.800padutch.com

Williamsburg, Virginia: http://www.history.org

Shaker Village, Kentucky:

Chestnut Square, Texas:

Phoenix, Arizona:

Visiting a living history village a fun way to learn about the roots of the country. It's fascinating for kids to see how simple life used to be.

So do something a little different this fall, and throw in some "undercover education." Visit a piece of living history this autumn and your kids will learn while having fun.
