    This is a good list for parents who want to mix a little “education” in with fun during vacations. I’ve been to Charleston and it was great, I’d also add San Antonio to the list because that was amazing between the old churches and the Alamo, etc.

      I’m from Texas, so I’ve seen San Antonio and of course, I loved it! I have a lot of other places I’d like to add to the list as I keep doing my research!
