    2013-03-25

    History and travel often go hand in hand. Whether it is ancient sites such as the Colosseum in Rome or more contemporary locations such as New York's Radio City Music Hall, some of the best attractions at popular destinations throughout the globe have historical slants to them. This is especially true when it comes to United States travel, as there are many tourist hotspots throughout the country that will appeal to even the most casual history buff, The Huffington Post notes.

    Acoma Pueblo - New Mexico
    Located about 60 miles to the west of Albuquerque, Acoma Pueblo is one of the oldest most continually populated places in the United States. In fact, experts estimate that the Acoma people, a tribe of Native Americans, have lived there for approximately 800 years. The destination offers the chance to get an up close look at a part of American history that you rarely get to experience in person. According to HuffPost, tour guides can bring you throughout the village, which offers stunning views of the surrounding rock formations as well as the impressive artwork of local villagers.

    Maymont - Richmond, Virginia
    Richmond is among the most historic cities in the south, and Maymont stands out as one of its most popular tourists destinations. Built in 1893, the sprawling residence was built for Major James H. and Sallie Dooley and over the years has developed into much more than a mansion. A walk grounds the grounds provides highlights for all members of the family, according to U.S. News and World Report. Among its most popular features are a petting zoo, arboretum, carriage collection and Japanese garden. Of course, the mansion's exquisite 33 rooms are not to be missed either.

    Donner Lake - California
    Few places in the United States combine history and natural beauty as much as Donner Lake. Located in the northeast corner of the Golden State, the lake is named after the Donner Party, a group that notoriously perished attempting to make the journey from St. Louis to the West Coast. The surrounding park offers a glimpse at the hardship they and others like them faced while making the trip. Today, it offers plenty of opportunities for adventure travel as well, with numerous hiking trails and campsites.
