Where do we go in 2020? Here are a few top choices for travel in the United States
If it is your resolve to see the world this New Year, then be sure to begin with the United States of America! Why, you ask?
America is a place of splendid beauty and extraordinary diversity that will make your travel experience exceptional and unforgettable! Here’s a list of destinations that will enchant, inspire and delight you!
Santa Fe, New Mexico
As soon as you set foot in Santa Fe, you will realize it is unlike anywhere else. With its rich history and heritage that includes Native American, Spanish, Mexican, cowboy, artistic and modern US cultures, Santa Fe is among the nation’s most unique cities.
Centrally located in the Rocky Mountains of northern New Mexico, Santa Fe has attracted artists, hikers, seekers, skiers and writers to its temperate climates and abundant scenery.
The nation’s second-oldest city and its oldest and highest-elevation state capital (2,200 meters above sea level), New Mexico’s oldest city retains a sophisticated feel – its Santa Fe Style.
Willamette Valley, Oregon
Picture a place where you can pull up a chair at a winemaker’s table and sip wine from grapes harvested right outside the door. Imagine a meal crafted from ingredients that were still in the ground this morning.
Envision a land of rolling hills, meandering roadways, historic towns and rushing rivers, framed east and west by forested mountains. This unforgettable spot has a name, the Willamette Valley. This is a place that beckoned to pioneers who trekked 2,000 miles to put down roots in this verdant land.
Today, the spirit of those stubborn dreamers lives on at more than 250 wineries where winemakers craft award-winning pinot noir; at craft breweries, small distilleries and artisan cheese shops, where resident experts accept nothing less than the finest in food and drink; and out in the fields and forests and waterways that beckon to daring souls.
Scottsdale, Arizona is luxurious. It’s a known sanctuary for the rich and famous, home to more destination spas per capita than any other US city.
One of the top-rated art festivals and the former winter estate of Frank Lloyd Wright hint at the city’s cultural prowess. With a nickname like ‘The West’s Most Western Town’ and a college where you can train to be a real cowboy, Scottsdale is also rugged.
And when you set foot in the expansive Sonoran Desert – the most biologically diverse desert on the continent blanketed in desert brush, wildflowers and the iconic saguaro cactus – you’ll discover that Scottsdale is a desert unlike any you’ve ever imagined.
Curious about life in the modern Midwestern USA? Look no further than this cool city, laced with walkable streets, authentic neighbourhoods full of character, positioned where three rivers meet and on the shores of Lake Michigan.
A mix of old and new, Milwaukee preserves – and celebrates – its historic German roots while making way for trendy shopping and dining, an admirable beer scene and all the outdoor recreation an urbanite could want.
Stay for Summerfest, the world’s largest outdoor music festival, or visit during winter, when ice skating and downtown carriage tours make the most of the snowy season.
No matter what time of year you visit, Milwaukee is an accessible, wallet-friendly city with plenty of year-round cultures, and natural beauty to explore.
Baltimore’s claim-to-fame may be that it was the birthplace of America’s National Anthem, The Star-Spangled Banner, but its determined, down-to-earth spirit makes it a truly American city.
With a dynamic Inner Harbor – the best view of which is from atop Federal Hill – that was as busy in the 18th Century as it is today, Baltimore is a city of contrasts.
This centre for cultural and heritage travel also is known for its quaint neighbourhoods and thriving culinary scene.
Tour the important landmarks like the first Washington Monument or first Catholic cathedral in the United States, but don’t miss seeing the vintage row houses and meeting proud, friendly locals.
