The United States is full of buzzing cosmopolitan cities and opportunities for a fun and cultured weekend away. Here are our top choices for the 12 best cities in the country for a mini-vacation.
- New York City
If you’re looking for an urban vacation, you can’t do better than the Big Apple. The city that never sleeps is still one of the United States top tourist destinations, and there’s so much to do that you’ll probably have to come back every weekend to see all of the sights. Hit 5th Avenue for some high class shopping and finish it all off with a Broadway show- NYC is perfect for families, couples or girly weekends on the town.
Chicago is fast becoming on of America’s coolest cities, with tons of art, culture and music and no shortage of great food. Try Pizzeria Uno for some of the best pizza you’ve ever tasted and get your culture fix at the Art Institute of Chicago.
Miami is perfect if you’re looking for a weekend city break with sunshine, shopping and sunbathing. For a weekend of pure relaxation and plenty of mojitos, visit South Beach- just stay away during the notorious spring break week.
- San Francisco
San Francisco is best taken in by foot or bicycle. It’s a city of stunning scenery and natural beauty outside of the urban center. Bring your bike and explore the trails along the waterfront- just don’t forget to visit the towering redwoods in Muir woods.
Boston is one of our oldest cities, so it’s perfect for history lovers who are looking for a break. With plenty of beautiful parks and fascinating museums and walking trails, Boston is particularly great for families, especially in summer when the New England weather is at its best.
