Faith is a cornerstone of the country, a significant human right that prompted the First Amendment and set the United States apart from the rest. Our melting pot culture and freedom of religion has provided us with a myriad of pilgrimage destinations which focus on faith, many of them historic destinations for student groups to explore and learn.
Destinations range from biblical theme parks such as Orlando, Florida's the Holy Land Experience, to traditional temples, mosques, and churches. At The Holy Land Experience, visitors get an inside look at exhibits and structures that characterize the style, architecture, and settings of biblical Jerusalem.
History, art and architecture tours are offered at faith-based destinations such as the St. Louis Cathedral in New Orleans, St. Patrick's Cathedral and Temple Emanu-El in New York City, among many others. These working and living faith communities offer open doors to visitors to be educated and to worship as they choose. Many of the top faith-based destinations in the U.S. are historic buildings, fashioned during great prejudice or using incredible architectural technique that surpasses expectations.
Whether your group is searching for a pilgrimage site to worship or simply to explore culture and custom, these destinations are sure to welcome you with open arms.
