It can pay to stay up late in Las Vegas—and not just by loitering at the craps table. Thanks to the nonstop casinos and conviviality, more bars and restaurants are doing reverse happy hours, like SushiSamba’s discounted Samba Hour, from 11 p.m. until 2 at the Palazzo. No doubt, Vegas also offers the full spectrum of people-watching, whether you’re at ...

One of the most beautiful cities in the world. San Francisco is full of character, life and has a heart of gold. Most people here are extremely friendly and have a zest for life. It is home to some of the world's best scenery, food and culture. You will never regret a visit to San Francisco!

Chicago was a complete surprise to me. The cleanliness of the city was welcome and appreciated. The shopping was amazing and the best reason to go? The food.

Nowhere compares to New York, the bright lights, the readily available yellow taxis, the incredible dining and arts scenes, and seemingly endless supply of local culture. Yet just a 5 foot rise in sea levels could submerge most of Manhattan...and with up to 8 inches possible in the next ten years, best to enjoy the Big Apple now!

San Diego has something for every type of traveler. The is Sea World, The Zoo, Lego Land and more beaches than I can count. Nightlife enthusiasts can troll the Gas Lamp District and the is always Petco Park for a football game or concert.

You'll feel a little out of place, a la 'Pretty Woman.' This city and famous zip code 90210 is home to many celebrities and affluent people. Great place for high end shopping and people watching.

If your idea of seaside bliss is waves crashing into the rocks, this former artists’ colony on Monterey Bay offers beach-town perfection. Readers’ favorite time to visit here was fall—perhaps because that’s also harvest time for the wineries (such as Heller and Galante) in neighboring Carmel Valley. Readers also loved the town for its romantic hotels; check in to the ...

LA...the land of movie stars, the Lakers, horrible traffic 24/7, smoggy weather, plastic surgery, and amazing food! I lived in LA for the last six years, and it has been great. Every part of the city has something interesting to see and do, whether it's high-end shopping in Rodeo Drive (well, Beverly Hills, but it's pretty much LA), a concert ...

Great for scenic drives on PCH and a variety of great beaches, restaurants and bars. Great art galleries as well.

Decadence and Art Deco characterize Miami's most famous neighborhood. But you could be forgoing the Fontainebleau and reminiscing about the architecture sooner rather than later. Miami’s party zone is predicted to see a rise of 23 to 61 cm in the next 50 years

La Jolla is a popular area for travelers as it's home to a gorgeous beach "La Jolla Shores" and also a popular tourist attraction, the seals at the La Jolla Cove. This town is also home to very fancy restaurants of all cuisines and high-end boutiques. A great place for a stroll or to have a nice meal. There are ...

About as far west of the Mississippi as you can get in the U.S., Honolulu tends to prepare its barbecue smoked over local wood. One prime example is Good to Grill, where the specialties are prime rib and short ribs smoked over kiawe, similar to mesquite. Lunch-only joint Guava Smoked smokes salmon bellies and turkey tails over strawberry guava wood, ...

This former mining town lies in a box canyon, surrounded on three sides by 14,000-foot peaks, so few places can rival the natural beauty, or the solitude (population: 2,500; stoplights: 0). A free, scenic gondola links Telluride to the neighboring Mountain Village, and Telluride Ski Resort itself counts 127 trails, three terrain parks, and an average snowfall of 309 inches. ...

Very nice and B E autiful ... We had fun tons to do and eat.. Cupcake shops are yummy.. The only hard thing was some of the homeless, we tried to hook them up with food.. I felt bad walking out of a high end restaurant with my beautiful wife and seaing that. Hmmm.. I don't know... Other then that ...

This historic town on Rhode Island’s Aquidneck Island scored in the top 10 for its vacation homes—and no wonder, since former part-time locals have included folks with last names like Vanderbilt and Morgan. For a lovely coastal stroll with mansion views, follow the Cliff Walk. And when you’re ready to swim, head to popular Easton’s Beach. Newport also ranked in ...

I don't spend a whole lot of time in Coronado simply because it's across the gorgeous bridge, but it's always a lovely time. Clearly, being an island means the beach is everywhere, and only a short drive or walk from where you are. There are great shops, restaurants, hotels, and beach rentals. This is a great place for a romantic ...

Red-tile roofs, California mission style, miles and miles of beaches, and a happening wine country. Santa Barbara is one of my fave weekend getaway spots because it's so easy to explore. You hardly need to plan anything -- just reserve a hotel room down by the waterfront or if you want to save money, a motel uptown along State St. ...

I simply loved this place! Most of the people feel, there is no huge tourist attraction here.. just few parks & squares.. but trust me it is one of the most romantic places I've ever visited in the world. The trees hang here like chandelier, the river walk gives immense scope for a hand-in-hand walk and local market is a ...

South of the condoville of Kihei, Wailea is the upper-crust resort enclave in South Maui. Not that that's a bad thing, though. The beaches are beautiful, with shoreline snorkeling and offshore scuba diving spots, most famously Molokini Crater (take a morning boat tour, rather than in the afternoon when it's most crowded and the waters are more murky). You've got ...

The A-list ski town has no shortage of plush hotels primed for romance—such as The Little Nell or the St. Regis—or sips to get you there: the Rocky Mountain state’s legendary craft beer scene helped rank this tony mountain town at the top of the survey for its local brews (such as Aspen Brewing’s pale ale called This Season’s Blonde). ...
