Updated on May 13, 2019

Dr. Bill is a retired University Professor who adheres to the philosophy of being a lifelong learner. He can help you be one too! ;-)

Over time, Heritage Tourism may be my largest hub article set - stop by regularly to see them all!

This article serves as a bit of Table of Contents, or the 'home base' where each of my Heritage Tourism hubs will be readily available. I've started on the 50 states, but, of course, have yet a ways to go. There are also a couple of introduction lenses that you might find useful.

Remember to come back regularly for your travel planning.

Introduction to Heritage Tourism

The following set of links direct you to hubs written to let you become better acquainted with the concept of Heritage Tourism: the historical, cultural, and natural aspect of business or personal travel away from home.

North Central States Heritage Tourism

The group of links below relate to Heritage Tourism in what I've segregated as the North Central States of the United States of America. This is my home region, so probably has a few more ready to share at this point. Weather should be considered as you plan your travels in this region.

Southwest Heritage Tourism States

This region is in the southwest portion of the United States. I have a daughter in Utah and another in Texas, we lived in Arizona, twice, over the years, so please forgive my biases here, as well. Enjoy your visit to these states any time of the year.

Southeast Heritage Tourism States

The southeast is a great region of the country for Heritage Tourism. The entire State of Tennessee, for example, is a National Heritage Area. More will be added here, as time goes by.

Northwest States Heritage Tourism

As I write this, I just have two states done. I have a brother-in-law in Alaska. We drive across Wyoming regularly. Is that enough justification?

Northeast States Heritage Tourism

These states are fullest of Heritage Tourism sites, yet I'm slowest at doing them. What to share the less obvious, first, is my position, and I'm sticking to it. ;-)
