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 Green Circle Trail. 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: Horicon Marsh (in Mayville), Wisconsin Dells (Fawn Creek Winery & Wilderness Territory) and Lion's Den Gorge Nature Preserve (in Grafton). There's much more to do: learn the secrets of beer at a beer tour and tasting, explore the world behind art at Overture Center for the Arts, don't miss a visit to Capitol Square, and contemplate the waterfront views at Lake Mendota.

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 Cockrell Butterfly Center. Visit Bayou Bend Collection and Gardens and George Ranch Historical Park for their historical value. Venture out of the city with trips to Justin P. Brindley Trail (in Sugar Land), Morton Cemetery (in Richmond) and Brazos Bend State Park (in Needville). The adventure continues: sample the tasty concoctions at Saint Arnold Brewing Company, stroll the grounds of Glenwood Cemetery, let little ones run wild at Discovery Green, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Houston Arboretum & Nature Center.
