Preservation is no different. We argue with city and state officials, we fight for new guidelines, we attempt to save buildings that represent the fabric of our communities. We move and we GO! So in the spirit of Go....

GO! for Heritage with Pokemon Go
 
A yellow pocket monster is the most sought after prize in the digital world these days, and heritage groups want you to find them at their sites. No doubt you have heard of Pokemon GO. It's a reality game of sorts that encourages friends and families to get up and Go! They GO in search of Pokemon stops and gyms so they can battle against other teams.

Playing Pokemon GOHaving created Pokemon stops all over the world, the makers of these little monsters have triggered a new interest in history. The stops are cultural landmarks of a community; by playing the game, players unknowingly expose themselves to the history of their neighborhood.

Well-known stops include the Liberty Bell, Mount Vernon, the Coliseum in Rome, Big Ben in London. There are countless other stops around the world, and probably some near you, wherever you may be. Pokemon GO is a fabulous way to educate and ignite heritage tourism. Have you found a Pokemon today?

GO West! (or North, or South, or East)
 
InCompass the mid-nineteenth century, young pioneers of America were encouraged to go west. “For all those who are in want of work Go West,” Horace Greeley once said. He wanted families to travel west and settle those untamed lands. Today we can go anywhere, to the north, south, east or west, we can just GO!

The most wonderful aspect of travel is the exposure to new cultures, new languages, new friends, and new loves. Do you have a love of flora? How about chapels? Do you swoon over French chateaus? Does western history light your fires? AiP can help you choose a direction. Sign up for an AiP heritage travel project, point your compass in any direction and GO!
