Sedona, AZ

Get a load of nature in this desert town filled with red rock formations, canyon walls, and pine tree forests. It’s also known for having a vibrant arts community, mild climate, and healing energy.

San Diego, CA

San Diego loves their pets, a good beach day, an ice-cold craft beer. During the day, stroll the coastline at La Jolla. Then, when the sun goes down, join the nightlife scene at the Gaslamp Quarter.

Colorado Springs, CO

Pikes Peak in Colorado Springs, CO

Colorado Springs- or anywhere in Colorado, really- is an outdoor lover’s paradise, with four gorgeous seasons. Winter is packed full of snow for skiing and ice skating. Spring beckons scenic hikes, colorful flowers, and plentiful wildlife. Summers encourage cool dips in the lake. Fall is for camping bags and crackling fires.

Savannah, GA

In Savannah, Georgia, you’ll be sure to experience that sweet southern hospitality you keep hearing about. And they love company. After all, they’re nicknamed the “Hostess City of the South.” So come on in. Make yourself right at home with some sweet tea, shrimp and grits, fried green tomatoes and peach pie. This will be a foodie experience for sure. But, if you can manage to look up from your plate, you’ll notice the plantations are some kind of beautiful. 

Fort Lauderdale, Fl

Head to South Florida for perfect year-round weather. You hear more about Miami than you do Ft. Lauderdale. But, the truth is, Fort Lauderdale is just as good if not better. It’s a smaller city, so it’s easier to explore. Plus, there’s less traffic on the streets and beaches. Las Olas is a famous mile-long stretch lined with plenty of restaurants, shops, and museums to keep busy.

Seafood lovers gather round. Maryland is known for their Chesapeake Bay and blue crabs, which they whip into every kind of dish from bisques to cakes. After your stomach has had it’s fill, head over to Downtown Annapolis: Tour the United States Naval Academy, shop at the boutiques, stop by the perfectly preserved historical landmarks, catch a show at the Summer Garden Theatre.

New York City, NY

New York City is full of a whole lot of get up and go. There are always things to see and do in the “City that Never Sleeps.”: The Statue of Liberty, Empire State Building, 9/11 Memorial, Staten Island Ferry, Broadway, Radio City, Central Park, The High Line, Grand Central Station, and more. Don’t forget to stop at a street vendor for a dirty water dog, and a slice of pizza on your way out. Or else, your trip won’t be complete.

Nashville, TN

Country music, gorgeous mountains, hot chicken, and whiskey. What more is there to say? Two places to see while you’re in the “Music City” are the Grand Ole Opry and the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. If you take a walk downtown on any given night, you will hear live music from several bands lining the streets.

Salem, OR

The state of Oregon is another outdoor-adventurer gold mine. They’ve got everything from skiing, to hiking, to tubing, and boating. And unrelated but still exciting- it turns out they know a lot about coffee too. So, grab a cup of joe to go from a local coffee shop, and climb up the Capitol building for a look out over the entire city.
