Miami

Magic City

Florida’s mecca of fun in the sun, the lively tropical metropolis of Miami is one of the world’s top vacation spots.
Visiting South Beach and Hollywood Beach will get you outdoors. Change things up with these side-trips from Miami: Scuba & Snorkeling (in Key Largo) and Florida Keys Wild Bird Rehabilitation Center (in Tavernier). There's much more to do: wander the streets of Lincoln Road, enjoy the sand and surf at Haulover Beach Park, get to know the fascinating history of Art Deco Historic District, and shop like a local with Collins Avenue.

The Lone Star State
Thanks to its size and geologic features, Texas contains diverse landscapes that closely resemble both the south and southwest of the United States. Though most people associate Texas with tracts of barren land, deserts cover only about 10 percent of the state, with most of its big population centers located in areas once covered by prairies, grasslands, and forests. As you travel from one end of Texas to the other, observe the changing terrain that ranges from coastal piney woods and swamps in the east to the mountains of the west, with rolling plains and rugged hills in the center. For a bit of urban sightseeing visit some of the state's large cities such as Houston, Dallas, or Austin, or immerse yourself in the nation's history by adding famous attractions like The Alamo to your itinerary. Take plenty of time to mingle with the locals, famous for their hospitality, generosity, and fiercely independent spirit.
