8 Historic Towns In Arizona That Will Transport You To The Past

When I was in grade school I loved learning about life in different eras, which probably explains why I read the entire American Girls Collection as my first foray into chapter books. The blend of reality, drama, and, in my eight-year-old brain, the different clothing styles were fascinating and incredibly different from my suburban upbringing. In fact, I still enjoy “witnessing” history through movies, novels, and an old collection of PBS and BBC shows that document life in past eras.

Since I will probably never live to see a working time machine, the next best experience is visiting historical places and towns that are well-preserved and may even feature re-enactments that attempt to bring past life into the streets.

Have you visited any of these places? What impressions did they leave you?
