I was very lucky growing up as the son of two educators. Not only did that help me to appreciate how noble the profession is, but it also gave me an abundance of quality time with my parents, since we all shared summer vacations together.

We made the most of those opportunities with our travels all around the United States, seeing a number of impressive things along the way.

Here’s what I remember about each:
