Music City U.S.A.

Known as the capital of country music, the thriving city of Nashville combines old-world southern charm with a progressive urban flair.
Lane Motor Museum and Tennessee State Museum are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Visit Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park and McGavock Confederate Cemetery for their historical value. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Nashville: Sam Davis Home (in Smyrna), Rippavilla Plantation (in Spring Hill) and President James K. Polk Home & Museum (in Columbia). There's still lots to do: paddle through the water with a kayaking and canoeing tour, see the interesting displays at Patsy Cline Museum, take in nature's colorful creations at Belmont Mansion, and explore the different monuments and memorials at Stones River National Cemetery.

Rocky Mountain High

Known as a ski resort town, Aspen's history goes back to its roots as a silver-mining village tucked away in an isolated valley of the Rocky Mountains.
Visiting Rio Grande Trail and Crater Lake Trail will get you outdoors. Explore hidden gems such as Maroon Lake Scenic Trail and Grottos Trail. There's still lots to do: fly down the slopes at Buttermilk Mountain, grab your bike and head to Castle Creek Road, trek along Cathedral Lake Trail, and stroll through Hunter Creek Trail.
