Search for the local historic sites around your home and go check them out. Most are free or have discounted tickets for low income families.
When I was growing up, my father took us to so many historical sites over the summers. I loved it! At first I thought it would be boring but I began to appreciate the history and the fact that people so many years ago influenced who we are today. We kept a map on the wall and pinned up every place we would visit.
My favorites were the battle fields, aviation museums, marine museums and even old homes where I could see how people used to live many years ago.
