Madison

— 20 nights

The City of Four Lakes

Madison might be the capital of Wisconsin, but students rather than politicians give the city its identity.
Get in touch with nature at Geneva Lake and University of Wisconsin-Madison Arboretum. First Unitarian Meeting House of Madison and Midway Village & Museum Center will appeal to history buffs. Change things up with these side-trips from Madison: Green Circle Trail (in Stevens Point), Wisconsin Dells (Fawn Creek Winery & Wilderness Territory) and Lion's Den Gorge Nature Preserve (in Grafton). There's still lots to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Horicon Marsh, admire the masterpieces at Chazen Museum of Art, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Lapham Peak, and don't miss a visit to Capitol Square.

Houston

— 23 nights

Bayou City

Although urban sprawl remains synonymous with Houston, most of the city's tourist attractions lie within the relatively small downtown area, surrounded by diverse neighborhoods housing the nation's biggest African-American, Asian-American, and Latino communities.
Step off the beaten path and head to Hermann Park and The Menil Collection. Visit Bayou Bend Collection and Gardens and San Jacinto Battleground State Historic Site for their historical value. Venture out of the city with trips to Justin P. Brindley Trail (in Sugar Land), Brazos Bend State Park (in Needville) and Richmond (Morton Cemetery & George Ranch Historical Park). Next up on the itinerary: stroll around Discovery Green, look for all kinds of wild species at St Francis Wolf Sanctuary, browse the exhibits of Cockrell Butterfly Center, and sample the tasty concoctions at Saint Arnold Brewing Company.
