Welcome to Discover America! 


This came to me as a pretty impromptu thought, but I think it will turn out to be a very beneficial project. I want to share with the world the beauties and fascinations this great land has to offer through pictures, video, and my own written experiences. Pretty much if I were to sum up what this site is all about, it would entail the historical, natural, and cultural treasures found here, in our own backyards. You may not realize it, but they're all around you. You just have to start looking first.


America's history is something that needs to be appreciated. It serves as a testament to our nation's triumphs and faults, both of which are key understanding the development of this country. We live on hallowed ground where our ancestors organized a revolution, pioneered new frontiers, and fought to preserve the union of the states. But all too often, historic sites are disregarded, neglected, and even destroyed due to rapid development and urbanization. To combat this recurring phenomenon, I will visit historic sites, participate in archaeological digs, and educate you all--the readers--about the significance of history. I hope to raise awareness and spark a renewed interest in our nation's history, so that future generations may be able to appreciate it just as much as we do today. Additionally, I want you all to take the initiative yourselves and visit nearby historic sites, wherever you may reside. Who knows? Maybe you will discover or learn something new and perhaps rejuvenate your interest in American history.

This country is just as rich in nature as it is in history. We are so fortunate to live in a vast, expansive nation. From the Appalachian Mountains to the Mojave Desert, and all the way up to the tundras of Alaska, America stands as one of the most environmentally-diverse countries in the world. I plan to record and review nature/hiking trails, bike paths, etc. in order to expose you all to the natural beauty this nation has to offer. Not to mention, all of this exploration is a great way to lead a healthy, active lifestyle. Hopefully my adventures will incentivize you all to go out and explore this nation for yourselves.

I'm very excited to start this project and I hope you are too! I know I will learn a lot from my experiences and so will you when I share these stories. I think this was a nice introductory post of what I do and how I want to operate Discover America. I urge you to like and share this page with you friends, family, neighbors, acquaintances, and anyone for that matter. I want to get as many people on board as possible! The more people who follow and like the site, the more people exposed to America's beauty and history, and the more people to appreciate it like I do. Additionally, if you'd like to contribute to the site, don't hesitate to contact me! I'd love to exhibit more stories from different authors across the country. Thanks everyone, and I hope you enjoy Discover America!
