Summer is upon us and many are preparing to travel across this great country.  During our travels we will visit many landmarks along the way.  On a recent day trip to the Botanic Gardens, there is a fabulous area with miniature trains that show all the landmarks Americans love to visit during the summer months.  I thought it would be fun to chronicle these landmarks so you can decide - where should you go this summer?  And which of these landmarks do you want to visit?

If you have been to one, comment and tell me how you liked it.  Tell me what was your favorite thing about that landmark.  During my travels over the years, I have been to many of these landmarks myself.  If I have actually been there - I will comment too.

Keep in mind, the landmarks you are going to see are not the REAL landmarks.  They are made from wood (but I am sure once you see them, you will realize this as well.)
