1. Northern Arizona. Take in the stunning beauty of Monument Valley, the Petrified National Forest and the picturesque red rocks of Sedona. Pose for a photo while standing on a corner in Winslow, ride horseback at a guest ranch or rent a houseboat on Lake Powell. And, of course, marvel at the Grand Canyon.

2. Niagara Falls. Formed some 12,000 years ago, Niagara Falls, straddling the U.S. border with Canada, has long been a magnet for explorers and adventurers, as well as honeymooners and travelers. By day, explore the area from multiple angles, via lush nature trails, a water-skimming jet boat or highflying helicopter. Each night, the park offers an illumination of the falls, along with seasonal fireworks.

3. The Bahamas. You’ll find lavish resorts in a bustling enclave or quiet getaways on tiny spits of sand, all just 50 miles off the coast of Florida. Choose your preferred sun-drenched environment from among 700 islands, embraced by crystal-clear water and the world’s third-largest barrier reef.

4. Tennessee. In the Volunteer state, you’ll find natural beauty, great music and vibrant communities ladled with a dose of Southern hospitality. Enjoy the 800-square-mile wonderland that is the Great Smokey Mountain National Park. Add a musical note to your trip with a stop by Graceland. Spend time in Music City USA, otherwise known as Nashville, to discover the rich origins of country music.
