We pulled out our passport book and Southeast Region Companion Guide Saturday night to decide which park(s) we would venture off to next. We decided to take a day trip to Alabama and visit Tuskegee Institute and Tuskegee Airmen. We arrived early and began our adventure at the Tuskegee Institute. My wife and I were both surprised at how spread out the University was. The actual museum is a little tough to find; we had to stop and ask for directions once we were on the campus. While the main attraction is Booker T. Washington’s home, we were more intrigued by the life of George Washington Carver. Be sure to spend the time watching the video of Carver’s life and to take the tour of Booker’s Mansion.
