dired-visit-history.el extends Emacs dired file visiting (its usual "Ret") to add filenames to file-name-history so they appear in the history for find-file and similar.

Whether you want this is a matter of personal preference, but it's good for unifying the history no matter whether typing in a filename or following a dired name.
