THE TOWN: Sacramento  is the capital city of California and with an estimated 2016 population of 493,025 it is the sixth-largest city of the state. In 2002, the Civil Rights Project at Harvard University conducted for Time magazine named Sacramento “America’s Most Diverse City”.  The city is known not only for its diversity, but for tree canopy,  historic Old Sacramento, evolving contemporary culture as the most hipster city in California, sunny climate, state administration, and farm-to-fork dining.

For Lonely Planet“Sacramento is a city of contrasts. It’s a former cow town where state legislators’ SUVs go bumper-to-bumper with farmers’ muddy, half-ton pickups at rush hour. It has sprawling suburbs, but also new lofts and upscale boutiques squeezed between aging mid-century storefronts.

The people of ‘Sac’ are a resourceful lot that have fostered small but thriving food, art and nightlife scenes. They rightfully crow about Second Saturday, the monthly Midtown gallery hop that is the symbol of the city’s cultural awakening. Their ubiquitous farmers markets, farm-to-fork fare and craft beers are another point of pride.”

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.

THE TOWN: Daytona Beach is a city in Volusia County, Florida, United States. It lies about 51 miles (82.1 km) northeast of Orlando and 242 miles (389.5 km) northwest of Miami. With a population of 61,000, the city is historically known for its beach where the hard-packed sand allows motorized vehicles to drive on the beach in restricted areas. This made Daytona Beach a mecca for motorsports, and the old Daytona Beach Road Course hosted races for over 50 years. This was replaced in 1959 by Daytona International Speedway. Lonely Planet invites to discover other sides too of Daytona Beach: “Anything but a wallflower, Daytona Beach draws a good-time crowd: it hosts one of the last spring breaks on the Atlantic Coast (tamer now than during its halcyon days); its population quintuples during Speed Weeks; and as many as half a million bikers roar into town for Bike Week in March and Biketoberfest in October. If balmy beer-soaked days and nights of motor-racing, motorcycles and the men who love them are your thing, you might have found your heaven on earth. If not, move on.If you can see past the garish beachside barricade of 70s high-rise blocks, nightclubs and tourist traps (if not quite literally), you might witness the phenomena of nesting sea turtles (in season) or explore a handful of interesting and worthwhile cultural attractions.
