Las Vegas — Nevada

Best for Nightlife

What happens in Vegas … well, you know the saying. Sure, you can get as naughty as you want in Sin City, but you just might be too busy seeing shows, such as Cirque du Soleil’s O, dining in trendy restaurants, shopping in luxury arcades, gambling in casinos, and dancing in swanky clubs to do any permanent damage.

Santa Fe — New Mexico

Best for Art Aficionados

Pull a Georgia O’Keeffe and lose yourself in Santa Fe’s otherworldly landscapes. Check out local artists’ work in the many galleries along Canyon Road, and see O’Keeffe’s famous animal skull paintings at her eponymous museum — then ponder all of this artistic magnificence over margaritas and a big bowl of guac and chips.

Where to Stay: La Fonda on the PlazaInn and Spa at Loretto

Nantucket — Massachusetts

Best for the Laid-Back Island Life

As soon as you step off the ferry, you’ll start to decompress on this postcard-perfect island off the coast of Cape Cod. It ticks all the island getaway boxes: gorgeous beaches, sweet gray-shingled cottages, and historic lighthouses. Nantucket also has a super cool Whaling Museum, and plenty of places for a lobster roll.

Sedona — Arizona

Best for Desert Scenery

You’ll never get over marveling at the beauty of the Red Rocks of Sedona — they’re that awe-inspiring. Get up close and personal with these rust-hued mesas and buttes via Jeep tour, then head to one of Sedona’s vortexes to soak up some positive vibes. (Using healing crystals and getting an aura photo is optional.)

Where to Stay: Hilton Sedona Resort at Red RockL’Auberge de Sedona

Chicago — Illinois

Best for a Big City Getaway

Sure, it could always be New York — but don’t dismiss the Second City. Incredible architecture (the skyscraper was born here), world-class museums (Did you know the famed American Gothic painting is in the Art Institute of Chicago?), deep-dish pizza, and the Cubbies make Chi-Town one of the best places to visit in the USA.

Big Sur — California

Best for a Scenic Drive

If you’ve seen HBO’s Big Little Lies (season 2 is expected to start in June), you’re no doubt blown away by the gorgeous cliff-hugging backdrops, especially around Bixby Bridge, the iconic 280-foot-high span on the Pacific Coast Highway. This jaw-dropping stretch from Carmel to the boho hangout of Big Sur is surely one of the world’s greatest scenic drives.

Kansas City — Missouri

Best for Barbecue

Kansas City, named one of the top places to visit in 2019 by National Geographic, is world-famous for its finger-lickin’-good barbecue, and a few standouts include Gates Bar-B-Q, featuring mouthwatering beef brisket, Q39, from national barbecue champ Rob Magee, and, just across the state line in Kansas, Joe’s Kansas City Bar-B-Que, with ribs, pulled pork, and smoked chicken on the menu.

Natchez — Mississippi

Best for Touring Antebellum Homes

The city of Natchez, a former trading post on the Mississippi River, is known for its many antebellum mansions, including Brandon Hall Plantation, now functioning as a charming inn with canopied beds, antique furnishings, and landscaped grounds. Other historic homes worth a visit include Longwood, Dunleith, and Auburn.

Washington, D.C.

Best for Free Museums

Can we talk about D.C. without getting political? Sure we can, especially when there’s so much to say about its free Smithsonian museums. See Dorothy’s ruby slippers at the National Museum of American History, a space shuttle at the National Air & Space Museum, and Nat Turner’s Bible at the National Museum of African American History & Culture.

Best for Wine Lovers

There’s a lot to love about Napa Valley. It’s just an hour’s drive from San Francisco, there are hundreds of world-class wineries to stop in for a tasting (A pinot noir on the deck overlooking vast vineyards? Yes, please!), and there are plenty of gourmet restaurants, including Thomas Keller’s famed French Laundry.

Hawaii

Best for Exotic Beaches

You can’t mention the best places to visit in the USA and not show the Aloha State some love, especially its beaches. From the black sand of Punaluu, to the green (yes, green!) sand of Papakolea Beach (both on the Big Island), to the great snorkeling at Maui’s Makua Beach, Hawaii lives up to its billing.

Best East Coast Wine Region
