TO THIS DAY, THE BEST TOURISTY THING I’ve ever done was a “literary pub crawl” in Edinburgh. We walked around the city to old bars and pubs that famous Scottish writers used to drink at. History is much more interesting when it goes hand-in-hand with intoxication.
There are plenty of historical bars in the United States, too. The website Trippy put together the perfect historic bar cross-country pub-crawl road trip. Their road trip includes 196 high-rated, historic bars.
