Women's History Month: Traveling into women's history

Today's Women's History Tidbit:
Amy Sedaris, Lucy Lawless and Jennifer Capriati were born.*

USA Today ran an excellent piece...called, "10 great places to honor our foremothers." It was a nice surprise as I took that short plane trip from Cleveland to Chicago.

Despite the fact that I read about the ten places on a plane, I am actually quite the road trip gal. I like having time to stare out the window, read a good book or knit another scarf. I love checking off one more state visited, even if most of the time I spend is in a family restaurant eating pancakes. The Arizona Women's Heritage Trail fits my definition of a dream vacation.

I'm lucky to have been in Jane Addams' Hull House many a time. No matter how often I go there for an event, I am still awed at the history of the place.

And the one trip I want to make out of all of them is up to Seneca Falls, to where it all started...the Women's Rights National Historical Park. That one will be a family vacation, as my daughter is named after Elizabeth Cady Stanton and the Baseball Hall of Fame is just a quick trip away. Oh and you know we'll pay homage to the women of the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League, even if USA Today didn't include them.

Where else would you suggest a women's history junkie take a stop? Is there a little-known tribute to a great woman from history in your neck of the woods?
