A transnational ‘Tour de Forts’ (and other historic places), based on past travels and future destinations.  These are some of the sites that stood out in presenting their history in an accessible way, while still being informative and accurate.  The best of these places (to me) are the ones who made the effort to not only recreate the places, people and possessions of their subject, but also to show which items were original and which were reconstructions or replicas.  Many of the attractions (especially forts) are miles better because of the wonderful staff who take care of these places, and perform rich reenactions of life in those times.  Canada is better off because we have preserved and promoted these historic places.
