History buffs can forego all of that Google searching and instead book travel with historians to visit significant sites through History Channel’s new travel offering, History Travel.
The first tour, slated for November, takes visitors to New Orleans where they can learn all about the birth of jazz. In December, travelers can head to Hawaii where they will visit the historic site of Pearl Harbor.
Trips in 2023 include journeys to England with historian Dane Kennedy to explore the life of English Prime Minister Winston Churchill with visits to the Churchill War Rooms and Bletchley Park; to Italy to study art and the Medicis in Florence with historian Marcello Bellini; and to Greece with historian Darius Arya to visit ancient ruins and wonders of the world such as Meteora and the Acropolis in Athens.
Domestically, travelers can experience Yellowstone in winter with historian Megan Kate Nelson, as well as Civil War sites Gettysburg and Antietam with historian Dennis E. Frye.
