For many Americans, summer is a time to squeeze in the most outdoor activities possible. Whether it’s a trip to the beach, seeing a ball game or hiking and camping at a national park, it’s a great time to get out and explore. Take advantage of the warm weather to visit one of the memorable and exciting landmarks noted here.

Visiting Gettysburg National Military Park is a great way to get a close look at a notable chapter in American history. The three-day Battle of Gettysburg was considered a turning point of the Civil War. Here, the Union defeated the Confederacy, and more than 30,000 soldiers were wounded or killed.

In his famous address at the dedication of the Gettysburg National Cemetery in Gettysburg in November 1863, President Lincoln reminded America of our founding values with the famous opening line: “Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.”

The roots of rock go back to the 1940s, to a combination of several forms of music: blues, jazz, gospel, swing, and country. Famous early artists include Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis, and the legendary Elvis Presley, known as “the King of Rock.” Over the years, rock music was influenced by other artists, particularly those from Great Britain. Many musical groups, including The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, traveled to America during the 1960s, during what is known as the British Invasion.
