When you hear the words “national historic landmark,” you probably think of the symbols of America – the Grand Canyon, the Statue of Liberty or Mount Rushmore.
Aside from the usual suspects, America has some very unusual and surprising national historic landmarks.
Some of them actually move – both the San Francisco cable cars and New Orleans street cars have been designated national historic landmarks.
Then, head to Huntsville, Alabama – the birthplace of NASA rockets. That’s where you’ll find one of the only three remaining Saturn V moon rockets – another national, historic landmark.
And in Altoona, Pennsylvania, there’s one of my favorites. It’s the Leap the Dips, which is the world’s oldest operating roller coaster. And yes, you can still ride it.
