Vacations can be had close to home and still be enjoyable. The United States has a lot to offer the intrepid traveler. Whether you love baseball, culture, or retail therapy, there’s something for everyone. Here are the top ten US travel destinations for your next holiday: 10. Chicago Chicago is the third largest city in the United States and is still a welcoming Midwest city. Try to visit in September when the weather is cooler, the kids are in school, and as a result there are less crowds and lower hotel rates. The windy city is a glittering jewel along Lake Michigan and September offers up Chicago Oktoberfest and the Hyde Park Jazz Festival as well as the tail end of Chicago fringe. Indulge in a day shopping along the Magnificent Mile or stroll through the Art Institute.
9. Washington. D.C.
The Nation’s Capital is at its most beautiful in mid-march to mid-April when the famous cherry blossom trees are blooming. There’s even a Cherry Blossom Festival during Spring to coincide with the trees in bloom. The best part is that the heat will be more than bearable (in fact bring a sweater just in case) during this time of year. The city has excellent transportation links to all the monuments and museums worth visiting. Just be prepared for lines when tourists begin to flood in!8. St. Louis
The city along the Mississippi River is best visited either between April and May or September through October. This is because of Missouri’s long, humid summer and cold, freezing winters. Either way, you’ll probably be able to catch a baseball game in Busch Stadium, which is worth the trip. Additionally, St. Louis boasts a group of museums in Forest Park that are free to enter and outside of the beautiful park, Grant’s Farm is an animal park with a tram tour that is owned and operated by Anheuser Busch. It’s really affordable for all the free things tourists can take advantage of.7. Orlando
Try to visit Orlando during winter to early spring. You’ll end up saving money on hotel rooms, tickets, and wait in fewer lines. There’s a theme park now for everyone, even people who love Harry Potter. Go in April and enjoy the Florida Film Festival. Then you can either hit the beach or even travel around Florida watching Pre-Season Baseball. You might need to take a light jacket because temperatures can get down to 50 degrees.6. New York City Visit the city that never sleeps at any time of the year and find plenty of things to do and see,
from Broadway musicals to central park to parades. The best time to save on a hotel is probably January or February, after the crowds from Christmas and New Years have gone away. However, summer might be hot and there might be more crowds but there are a load more events outside, like the Metropolitan Opera in the Parks in June through July. Regardless of the time of year you visit, be sure to take in a little retail therapy.5. Seattle
Try to visit Seattle and its environs in the fall. The Pacific Northwest will be a cacophony of color. Seattle also has an abundance of fall festivals and coupled with lower hotel rates it clearly is the best time to visit. You might even catch a whale-watching trip, though they’re more plentiful in the spring. Mount Rainier and several National Parks are well within driving distance and is worth the trip for all the scenic beauty Seattle can provide. Coffee lovers can visit the original Starbucks too.4. Denver
Head out the mile high city in spring or fall to enjoy nicer temperatures and lower hotel rates. In the fall, Denver hosts the Great American Beer Festival and Oktoberfest. Yet in the spring, tourists can enjoy a Soul Food Festival and Jazzfest. Regardless of the weather, Denver boasts excellent museums such as the Denver Museum of Nature & Science and the Denver Art Museum. Then head out to the Mount Evans Scenic Byway for a taste of the mighty Rocky Mountains.3. New Orleans
The time to visit the Big Easy really depends upon how much you want to see Mardi Gras when considering booking a hotel room months in advance at steep rates. The sweet spot for visiting the city has to be the fall, when temperatures drop and the city hosts a whole bunch of music and creole food festivals. It’ll be easier to get into top local attractions like St. Louis Cathedral and the New Orleans Museum of Art. For nature lovers, there’s also a plethora of opportunities to commune with nature, either through the Audubon Nature Institute or local swamp tours.2. San Francisco
Spring and fall provide the best weather for tourists wanting to visit the Golden Gate City. It’s in September where San Francisco plays host to the San Francisco Jazz Festival, Ghirardelli Square Chocolate Festival, and the San Francisco Fringe Festival. Be sure to ride the cable car, visit Alcatraz, and view the Golden Gate Bridge. You can even see seals by visiting Land’s End and taking a hike along side the water of the bay. For Disney lovers, the Walt Disney Family Museum is also in San Francisco.1. Boston
Boston has a rich and storied past and is the perfect base for exploring New England. The best time to visit is the fall to take advantage of the leaves changing color because the views around New England are spectacular at this time. You can also catch the Boston Film Festival in September or Oktoberfest in October. Temperatures will start to drop so bring a sweater! Imbibe in some culture by visiting the Museum of Fine Arts and then walk the Freedom Trail while the temperatures are still comfortable. Boston traffic is crazy though.
