This is my thing.

Was very interested to see that there is some growing popular interest in tourism around Native American mounds- the stuff I wrote my Masters thesis on and want to do my PhD on.
The New Yorker actually devised a road trip to view some of the most impressive, which you can read here http://travel.nytimes.com/2008/08/15/travel/escapes/15mile.html.
I will definately consider doing it when I get back, even though I’ve already been to most of the sites. They’re still very impressive, and definately under appreciated (and unknown) by the majority of tourists. Perhaps the economy will encourage people to do more travelling at home, and then discover these sites!
