For centuries, visitors have embarked on excursions around the world that explore ancient and current cultures, their architecture, cuisine, craft, literature, music, art, customs and traditions. They flock to historical places to understand the impact of past generations as demonstrated through inventions, politics, sports, religion, entertainment, industry and commerce.”• In the past decade, the cultural heritage tourism movement in the US has gained recognition and momentum. www.culturalheritagetourism.org
