As our list of travel itineraries grows, the historic destinations you can visit online or in person are virtually endless! Each itinerary is a self-guided tour to historic places most of which are listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Spotlighting different communities, geographic regions and themes across the country, the travel itineraries expose you to a huge variety of places significant in American history, architecture, archeology, engineering, and culture. The Discover Our Shared Heritage Travel Itineraries can help you plan your next trip!
About the Travel Itinerary Series
Since 1995, the National Park Service has been pleased to develop this series of travel itineraries in collaboration with many public and private partners. These travel itineraries highlight thousands of sites, most of which are listed in the National Register of Historic Places—bringing them to the attention of anyone interested in learning more about American history, architecture, archeology, engineering, and culture and encouraging people to visit and enjoy these important and inspiring places. Many of the travel itineraries were first proposed by local preservation organizations; historical societies; chambers of commerce; regional or statewide groups; and federal, state, and local government agencies, who then worked in partnership with the National Park Service to develop them.
The National Park Service is grateful to all of its partners who have contributed to the travel itinerary program. For program information, please contact us.
