Living History: The Nina and Pinta to Dock in Houma

If your Frugal Family Travelers are a fan of living history, you will not want to miss an opportunity to visit what is called "the most historically accurate replica of the ship ever built", spoken of Christopher Columbus' the Nina, which will be docked, along with a replica of the Pinta, in Houma, November 27-28 and December 1-5.

The Nina was built using hand tools and designed to be a floating museum to educate the public about the caravel, which was a Portuguese ship used by many early explorers.  Both the Nina and Pinta are part of the Columbus Foundation and travel to various ports of call to share the rich history surrounding Columbus' historic voyages in discovery of the new world in 1492.

A visit here would be an amazing activity for those with family in town this week for Thanksgiving. Groups of 15 or more qualify for a $5 group rate.   What a great opportunity to get up close and personal with history with YOUR Frugal Family Travelers
