...interesting to experience a little of the history of Colonial America some day. I don´t know everything there is to know about your history, but I think I have a decent grasp of some of the most important events through literature and movies.
Start with the Boston area but visit the Wild West to experience some of that, too.
You've lived here or in Canada, I think?
I´ve seen (the Canadian version of) the Wild West. Lived in Calgary for most of a year and also spent many summers out west. Visits to USA limited to a number of weeks (less than 10).
I suppose a tea party in Boston could be a good start.
