The Louvre in Paris

Museum of the American Revolution
Just in time for Thanksgiving, take this tour of our history.  Be sure to scroll down and pick the gallery or galleries you wish to explore.  See the intro here.

Mount Vernon
Or you can tour the home of George Washington, first President of the United States, who refused the title of King.  Check it out here.

Queen Elizabeth's Official Residence in Scotland
And while you're at it, your can jump back over the pond to see some of the colonial influences here.  Or if you're into Royals, you can see a whole lot more about them here.  A nice place to visit, but I wouldn't want to live there :-)
