There are many places I want to take my family before the younger portion, i.e. my daughters, move away. Sure, I plan on taking my kids to the usual places like Disneyland and Disney World; however, they will be sure to complain about most of the places I plan on taking them. I used to whine to my parents when we visited national parks and other boring places, but I now understand why they loaded all of us in a van and drove us from site to site while on family vacation.
There are two careers I contemplated going into prior to law school — history professor or FBI/CIA agent. The reasons why I wanted to be an FBI/CIA agent should be fairly obvious (has to be an exciting job). I wanted to be a professor because I absolutely love history.
I graduated from the University of Utah with a degree in history and I seriously contemplated pursuing a doctorate in this field rather than attending law school. When I was in school, I read as many history books on various subjects as I possibly could. It helped that I had a job that allowed me to listen to ten hours of books on tape each night. I filled each working night with biographies, histories, fictional histories, and autobiographies. I learned that there was something about history that just fascinated me. Consequently, many of the places I want to take my kids before they grow up are historical sites.
Here are the top 20 historical places I want to take my kids before they grow up:
