Albuquerque: Multicultural City with Long, Storied Past

Not only is Albuquerque New Mexico's largest city, it's also one of the state's most culturally diverse. Since its official founding in 1706, Spanish, Mexican, and Native American influences have shaped the local culture, reflected in the city’s distinctive Pueblo Revival–style architecture.

The bulk of Albuquerque's cultural offerings center on Old Town, where you'll find art galleries and restaurants housed within historical adobe buildings. About a mile northeast of Old Town, the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center has an impressive collection of artifacts dating back to pre-Columbian settlers. The museum building is inspired by the Pueblo Bonito ruins of Chaco Canyon.

To see a real pueblo, head to Acoma Pueblo, about 65 miles west of Albuquerque. Set atop a mesa, this dusty village—one of the oldest in the country—consists of centuries-old adobes where native artisans craft pottery with distinctive black-and-white designs.

Keystone, Colorado: Upscale Resort Town near Mountains and Alpine Lakes

Located about 75 miles west of Denver, the resort town of Keystone is lined with four-star restaurants and high-end shops, but Keystone Mountain is town’s focal point. Two gondolas are among the 20 lifts that scale up Keystone Mountain, which transforms into a scenic park for biking, horseback riding, and guided hikes once the summer begins. Take the gondola to Adventure Point at top of the mountain to tube-slide down a snowy hill that stays slushy well into the summer. The area also features two championship golf courses that stretch past pristine lakes, meadows, and the Snake River.

Less than 10 miles west of town lies the Dillon Reservoir, a lake spanning more than 3,000 acres that now covers the original site of the town of Dillon. Here, you can spend a day canoeing, windsurfing, or fly-fishing on the Blue River, which flows into the lake. To the north, the Arapaho National Forest stretches across 1.5 million acres of protected mountains and grassland laced with hiking trails.

Heber Valley, UT: World-Class Fly-Fishing and Mountain Golf Courses Near Utah’s Ski Country

Set amid the Wasatch Mountain Range, Utah’s Ski Country is home to premier recreation resorts including Deer Valley, the Canyons, and Park City Mountain Resort. About 20 miles south of here is the lesser-known Heber Valley, a hidden gem nestled between the mountains’ windswept canyons. The area sees some traffic due to its high-profile neighbors, but with three state parks, five mountain golf courses, and some of the country’s best fly-fishing, this backcountry is a premier destination in its own right. For an introduction to the area, board the Heber Valley Railroad—which dates back to 1899—for a scenic ride through Provo Valley and past the Wasatch Mountains aboard steam and vintage diesel trains.

Anglers flock to Heber Valley’s Provo River year-round to catch brown, rainbow, and cutthroat trout. Part of the river has been designated a “Blue Ribbon Fishery” by the United States, a status reserved for the country’s highest quality fisheries.

The 18-hole lake course at Wasatch Mountain State Park sits at an elevation of 6,000 feet, surrounded by hiking trails and alpine forests filled with bison, deer, and osprey. Summertime also means free concerts in Heber City Park, and sailing and windsurfing at Deer Creek State Park.

Orlando, Florida: World-Famous Theme Parks and Cultural Surprises

Located in the center of Florida, Orlando may be forever associated with the Walt Disney World® Theme Parks. It spans roughly 30,000 acres, encompassing four theme parks, two water parks, five golf courses, and the Downtown Disney® Marketplace. There’s no shortage of things to do here: begin your day by boarding a rocket-shaped three-seater that climbs to 180 feet before entering a deep black tunnel and racing past stars, satellites, and constellations. Walk across the park to sample Moroccan cuisine for lunch, or ride a dune buggy through a haunted 18th-century mansion. Before heading back to the hotel, take in the nightly fireworks, laser, and water show. As one of the most popular family destinations in the world, sunny Orlando is home to other theme parks including Universal Orlando Resort, SeaWorld, and Gatorland.

Those hoping to shake up the typical theme-park-dominated itinerary can head into downtown Orlando's vibrant arts district. The neighborhood boasts venues such as CityArts Factory, a multifaceted patchwork of gallery spaces, and SAK Comedy Lab, which hosts family-friendly improv shows five nights a week.

About a 10-minute drive north, you’ll find eight cultural institutions at Loch Haven Park, including the Orlando Museum of Art, which houses pieces by Georgia O’Keeffe, Robert Rauschenberg, Ansel Adams, and Andy Warhol.

You’ll have access to all the facilities of the larger complex, too, including windsurfing, sailing, tennis, and other recreational activities.

Punta Cana, Dominican Republic: Miles of White-Sand Beaches

When Christopher Columbus landed on the Dominican Republic more than five centuries ago, he described it as "a beautiful island paradise." Punta Cana, located on the island's easternmost tip, lays legitimate claim to that description. The coast stretches for more than 20 miles and is dotted with coconut palms, chaise lounges, and laid-back bars. Glitzy resorts feature prominently along the shoreline, but Playa El Cortecito, a short drive up the coast, harks back to earlier times. Brightly colored, thatched-roof shacks line the beach, and local fishermen bring their boats to shore each afternoon with the day's catch.

Cozumel, Mexico: Relaxed Tropical Island with World-Class Diving

Cozumel, Mexico’s largest Caribbean island, lies just off the eastern coast of the Yucatán peninsula. Compared to Cancún—Mexico's spring-break capital, located 50 miles north—Cozumel is decidedly laid-back. Formerly a fishing settlement, the island remains blissfully free of high-rise resorts and other signs of overdevelopment. Visitors here tend to focus more on exploring the wilderness than on late-night beach parties. Adventure-tour companies arrange expeditions by land or by sea, including trips to ancient Mayan ruins and the island’s jungles, marshes, and dive sites known for deep canyons and tunnels.

More than 500 species of fish swim among turtles, rays, and countless other aquatic animals inside the coral formations at Palancar Reef, one of the dozens of diving and snorkeling sites encircling Cozumel. Another site, just off the northwestern coast, houses a 40-passenger Convair airliner. Sunk in 1977 for the filming of a Mexican disaster movie, the plane has become overgrown with coral and sea fans and is frequented by schools of colorful parrotfish. Above the surface, you’ll find white-sand beaches frequented by sunbathers.

There's only one city on the island—San Miguel de Cozumel, where street vendors on a waterfront promenade sell everything from jewelry to Cuban cigars. It’s also where you’ll find an assortment of clubs and bars showcasing live reggae-salsa fusion and jazz bands.

Online: $69.00 for Southwestern Resort in Sonoran Desert ($123.00 value)

AAA Four Diamond Resort near Downtown Scottsdale

About a dozen miles northeast of downtown Scottsdale, private homes gradually give way to thousands of saguaro cacti. It’s in this secluded area that you’ll find the Radisson Fort McDowell Resort—a sprawling, modern-day oasis set against the backdrop of one of North America's largest deserts.

Depending on which side of the building they’re on, the hotel’s standard rooms look out on the McDowell Mountains, the resort's two outdoor pools, or a championship golf course. One of this deal’s options includes a round at the visually stunning We-Ko-Pa Golf Club. Stop by one of the pools for a dip or to kick back in a lounge chair, or head to the Amethyst Spa & Health Club for a stone massage or hydrating facial.

Next door to the hotel is the 24-hour Fort McDowell Casino, where hundreds of slot machines mix with poker tables, keno, and bingo. Five onsite eateries serve everything from burgers and shakes to traditional sushi. For a more upscale dining experience, there’s the Ahnala Mesquite Room, which has a fireplace and views of the mountains.

For guests bringing children, there are a number of options for the younger ones to take advantage of as well. The kids can enjoy movies by the pool on Friday and Saturday nights, a poolside DJ on Saturdays, and a jumbo inflatable slide and free hot dogs for children under 12 on Saturday and Sunday.

Scottsdale, Arizona: Stucco Mansions amid Rocky Desert Landscape

Located just northeast of Phoenix in the Sonoran Desert, Scottsdale once served as ranch land where farmers grew oranges and lemons and cowboys kicked up dust in the fierce, dry heat. That era earned Scottsdale the official nickname of “The West's Most Western Town.” Today, it’s an affluent city filled with lush green spaces and stucco mansions. For a glimpse of the city's roots, head to Old Town Scottsdale, where wooden boardwalks and hitching posts sit in front of rustic specialty shops and a retro ice-cream parlor.

Further out, cacti and tumbleweeds dot the landscape, and dry shrubs cover the McDowell Mountains. To get a closer look at southwestern flora, head to the Desert Botanical Garden. Themed trails wind past huge cacti and other moisture-hoarding succulents, best seen in the cool early morning or twilight hours.

About 12 miles from the hotel is Taliesin West, the winter home and architecture campus of renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright. Take a guided tour of the grounds to see how Wright's design echoes the landscape, with gently sloped roofs that recall the mountains and a southwestern color palette of oranges, reds, and browns.

Ocean Shores is Washington state’s most popular seaside retreat, and it’s no wonder—it’s set along a 30-mile stretch of beaches on a peninsula dangling in the Pacific Ocean. Ocean Shores Inn & Suites sits just a five-minute walk from the sand. Views at the hotel are of an adjacent championship golf course.

Nifty in-room amenities: Each one-bedroom condo comes with a fully equipped kitchen.

Ocean Shores, Washington: Endless Beaches and Links-Style Golf

In July and December, high tide is a dramatic event on Point Brown peninsula, the skinny landmass in coastal Washington home to Ocean Shores. At those times of year, monster waves capable of reaching 12 feet in height pound the surf with a deafening roar. During the winter, bundled-up storm watchers gather to see 100-mile-per-hour winds whip the sea into a frenzy.

Of course, things are usually a lot calmer in this seaside resort town. At Ocean Shores Golf Course, the only furor you’re likely to see is from players who lose golf balls in the thick rough of the links-style back nine. And with some 30 miles of beaches—some of them reachable only on foot—Ocean Shores offers plenty of quiet spots to relax and soak up the gorgeous Pacific Northwest scenery.

Online: $99.00 for Four-Star Miami Hotel Overlooking Biscayne Bay ($179.00 value)

Elegant 4-Star Suite Hotel Overlooking Biscayne Bay

Throughout the 1970s and early '80s, The Mutiny Hotel, along with its famous Mutiny Club, was a major player in Miami’s party and disco scene, attracting international jet setters, celebrities, music moguls, and athletes. Even the hit TV show Miami Vice showed its characters partying at the club. Though The Mutiny closed its doors in 1985, it reopened in 1999 after renovating its suites to exhibit a more intimate, laid-back atmosphere. The all-suite, boutique-style hotel is housed in a distinctive, 12-story luxury tower that rises above a yacht-filled part of Biscayne Bay known as Sailboat Bay.

“Service and style are bountiful at the Mutiny,” writes Frommer’s, and that trademark style is on display in each 750-square-foot one-bedroom suite. The suites were designed with an understated, tropical, British-colonial motif in mind, and some kick it up a notch with a private balcony overlooking Biscayne Bay. No matter which one you settle into, you’ll be able to stretch out in a separate living area, cook dinner in a full kitchen, and watch the news on a flat-panel TV.

Executive chef Atchana Capellini crafts contemporary Asian-fusion fare at the onsite Atchana’s East/West Kitchen, where guests can dine indoors or sit outside near the poolside waterfall. To relax, take a dip in the heated pool, which is lined with lush tropical plants and all-white loungers.

Coconut Grove and Coral Gables, Florida: 1920s Magnificence Alongside Cuban Culture

Located just a few miles south of Miami, Coconut Grove is a small seaside town along Biscayne Bay. Here, you can stroll past the sidewalk cafés, art galleries, and tropical gardens that characterize the elegant town. In the neighboring city of Coral Gables, a trolley runs down Ponce de León Boulevard. The trolley is a testament to the throwback feel of Coral Gables, which has numerous boulevards lined with Mediterranean Revival mansions.

Throughout Coral Gables, signs demarcating local and national landmarks pop into view as frequently as brown anole lizards dart across the sidewalk. Walk through avenues such as Coral Way and you'll find fluted columns and terra-cotta tiles on Venetian-inspired villas, including the Merrick House, the former manor of Coral Gables founder George Edgar Merrick. To the south, the Miracle Mile features popular restaurants and independent boutiques.

You can experience an alternate history of the area in the nearby Miami neighborhood of Little Havana. Calle Ocho, or Eighth Street, brims with Spanish-language cafés and restaurants that serve everything from coconut-laden Nicaraguan cuisine to Cuban sandwiches pressed as flat as an elephant's flip-flops. Nestled at the center of Calle Ocho is Domino Park, where domino masters play from dawn until dusk. The area buzzes with live music, gallery openings, and free walking tours led by historian Dr. Paul George during Viernes Culturales—Cultural Fridays—held the last week of every month.

Click here to see a detailed trip itinerary. Below is a summary of trip highlights—note that trips from New York have a reverse itinerary (Hawaii first, then New Zealand).

Days 1–3: Auckland, New Zealand

On Day 1, you'll take a morning flight to Honolulu where you'll catch a connection flight to Auckland. You'll arrive in Auckland on Day 2 and transfer to your downtown hotel for a two-night stay. While you’re in Auckland, check out the Auckland Museum, which pays homage to New Zealand’s vibrant history and rich culture with recreated marine exhibits and a collection of taonga, or treasures from the island’s indigenous Maori tribe.

Arguably the best view of Auckland is from 328 meters high atop the Auckland Sky Tower, an observation tower that bears resemblance to Seattle’s Space Needle or Toronto’s CN Tower. The tower—which is the Southern Hemisphere’s tallest freestanding structure—offers panoramic views of Auckland’s glittering harbors, beaches, and skyscrapers.

Days 4–6: Rotorua
On Day 4, you'll pick up your rental car in the downtown depot just a few steps from your hotel. You’ll venture south to Rotorua, a lakeside town with an enchanting landscape of geothermal pools, geysers, and springs. At the region’s Waimangu Volcanic Valley, you can see this geothermal upheaval firsthand, as fumaroles spout amid lush tropical vegetation, sulphuric rocks, and azure lakes.

For an eerie yet magical experience, take a detour and visit the Waitomo Caves and take a boat ride for an additional fee. Here, the boat glides through an underground river, where if you look up, you’ll see hundreds of tiny glowworms glowing from the cavern’s stalactites.

On Day 6, you will depart Rotorua. You’ll head back to Auckland for an overnight stay before visiting the Bay of Islands, located a few hours north of Auckland.

Days 7–8: Bay of Islands
Bay of Islands is a cluster of nearly 150 individual islands that have attracted tourists in search of water recreation. Sea-kayak tours weave around the islands and their rocky shores, including the famous Hole in the Rock. Along the way, you should see dolphins, which thrive in the sub-tropic waters. Some tours stop off to allow passengers to swim with the dolphins at designated sites.

Days 9–12: Honolulu, Hawaii

On Day 9, you'll drive back to Auckland for your late evening flight to Hawaii. A trip to Honolulu brings this vacation to a close. You’ll have three nights to bask in the temperate climate and lush, green surroundings of Oahu. A good place to start is Waikiki Beach, surrounded by tranquil waters that are ideal for first-time surfers.

Further inland, you can hike through Makiki Valley’s rainforest to see massive, sinuous trees alongside rock-filled brooks. It’s worth making the trek to Diamond Head State Monument, a 300,000-year-old saucer formed by a single explosive eruption and arguably Hawaii’s most recognizable landmark. Hikers can walk down a 0.8-mile trail where molten lava once smoldered to ascend to the crater’s 560-foot-tall lip. Before heading home, consider attending an optional luau to watch hula dancers perform the traditional dance by torchlight (additional fee).
