    First I want to say how much I LOVE this series. Which actually brought me to the facebook page, and then this! The video was very informative and presented so greatly! I have never enjoyed learning about history more. If I ever become a history teacher or a father, this will be shown to my kids!

    The coolest place I’ve visited in the United States was New York, and the statue of Liberty. What an amazing story behind that statue. To learn about it, then experience it first hand was truly a great moment in my life. There is nothing like learning the history or something, then getting to visit it. There is so much I still want to see and experience in the US!

    The coolest place I have ever visited is New Orleans for Mardi Gras. We also went on a cemetary tour,walking historical tour and went through the new WWII museum. The new museum has vets volunteering their time to guide and also to answer questions. God Bless our Soldiers in US & Canada

    The ultimate spot in America is Lake Tahoe. From skiing to hiking, what a majestic place.

    It’s entirely subjective, of course, but the coolest place for me was Perris, CA, home of the Orange Empire Trolley Museum.
