THE TOWN: Las Vegas is the most populated city the state of Nevada, United States. It anchors the Las Vegas Valley metropolitan area and is the largest city within the greater Mojave Desert. It is an internationally renowned major resort city, known primarily for its gambling, shopping, fine dining, entertainment, and nightlife.

Lonely Planet‘s writer Benedict Walker explains why he loves so much Vegas: “Dazzled by the shimmering amber of Downtown’s streetlights, seduced by the Strip’s shiny neon and mesmerized by the city’s outlandish, outrageously photogenic pull, I found myself in an escapist vision where I could forget my troubles. But I soon realized that Vegas’ real appeal is far richer than its surface glitter. It’s in the brilliance of its performers, the artistry of its designers, the inspired passion of its chefs, the ingenuity of its architects and the grit and good humor of the everyday, home-proud folk who keep their city churning round-the-clock, that Las Vegas truly shines.”

THE TOWN: Charleston is the oldest and second-largest city in the U.S. state of South Carolina. The city lies just south of the geographical midpoint of South Carolina’s coastline and is located on Charleston Harbor, an inlet of the Atlantic Ocean formed by the confluence of the Ashley and Cooper Rivers. It had an estimated population of 132,609 in 2015. Known for its rich history, well-preserved architecture, distinguished restaurants, and mannerly people, Charleston is a popular tourist destination and has received a large number of accolades, including the “World’s Best City” by Travel + Leisure.

Lonely Planet writes: “This lovely city will embrace you with the warmth and hospitality of an old and dear friend – who died in the 18th century. We jest, but the cannons, cemeteries and carriage rides do conjure an earlier era. And that historic romanticism, along with the food and Southern graciousness, is what makes Charleston one of the most popular tourist destinations in the South, drawing more than 4.8 million visitors every year.”

THE TOWN: Orlando is a large city located in Orange County, Florida. For most people, conjures up the image of theme parks, mainly Walt Disney World, but there is a lot more. With the estimated 52 million tourists a year, Orlando and many other areas in the region developed a lot to offer a traveler who wants to see something other than a theme park. For Lonely Planet: “It’s quite easy to get caught up in the isolated worlds of Disney or Universal Orlando, never venturing beyond their constructed environments, but do so and you will find Orlando has so much more. Lovely tree-lined neighborhoods, a rich performing-arts scene and several fantastic gardens, nature preserves and museums in and around the city encourage a slower pace often passed over by visitors. Even if you’re coming to Orlando for the theme parks, take a few days to jump off their spinning wheels of adrenaline-pumped fantasy to explore the quieter, gentler side of Orlando. You may be surprised to find that you enjoy the theme parks all that much more as a result.
