This Is What Life In The U.S. Looked Like In 1935. WOW.

As our parents and grandparents love to remind us, life wasn’t always like it is today. In 1935, America was dealing with the Great Depression and inching its way towards World War II. Check out these fascinating snapshots of everyday life in the United States back in 1935. Some things are familiar – families, kids, and shopping during the holidays – while other elements make the past feel like a different world.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:
