For those people lucky enough to be off work it may mean a short getaway for a long three day weekend. So what can you do on your long weekend getaway, maybe explore a “Namesake City.”
What is there to see and do in McKinleyville California? It is named after our twenty-fifth President William McKinley. What sights are there to see in Jackson Mississippi? This capitol city is named after President Andrew Jackson. Of course there are the other capitol cities, Lincoln Nebraska, Jefferson City Missouri, and Madison Wisconsin.
Of course there is always Jacksonville Florida, Monroe Washington, Kennedy Minnesota and Polk City Iowa, Reagan Texas and Wilson Utah.
Of course there is the “biggie” Washington D.C. But for me there is a personal connection … my Cleveland Ohio. Despite the name it is not named after Grover but in truth is named after Moses.
So if you are fortunate enough to have a long weekend consider exploring and honoring our past presidents on this President’s Day. Not only are there cities to explore but countless museums and parks.
If there are other cities please let us know where they are and why we should explore there.
