2. See the Spot Where Aaron Burr Shot Alexander Hamilton

Fans of the musical Hamilton will know of the Weehawken Dueling Grounds from the song "Your Obedient Servant." History buffs and anybody who loved history in high school will also have heard of the spot. It was here, on the New Jersey coast, that Vice President Aaron Burr shot Alexander Hamilton. Although the site has changed massively since the 1804 duel, the place that was once known as "The Heights" still exists to visit today. Despite its long and grotesque history, the grounds are now a luscious park that provides incredible views and picnic spots.
