Mile-High City

Aptly nicknamed the "Mile-High City," Denver sits at an altitude of 1,600 m (5,280 ft) above sea level, located right where the Great Plains give way to the Rocky Mountains.
On the 28th (Wed), examine the collection at National Ballpark Museum, then go deep underground at Hidee Gold Mine, and then relax and float downstream with a rafting and tubing tour. Keep things going the next day: let little ones run wild at Foster's Place Playground, then take in the awesome beauty at Mount Evans, and then take a memorable drive along Mount Evans Scenic Byway.

Big Pineapple

In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Kick off your visit on the 30th (Fri): stroll the grounds of USS Arizona Memorial, go for a walk through Diamond Head State Monument, and then contemplate the waterfront views at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve.

The Aloha State
An archipelago of hundreds of volcanic islands located in a geological hot spot in the middle of Pacific, Hawaii offers diverse natural scenery and a warm tropical climate. The six major islands open to tourism draw visitors with their sun-drenched public beaches and craggy natural trails. Thanks to their mid-Pacific location, the islands boast a vibrant native culture influenced by both North America and Asia. You can spend your vacation basking in the modern comforts of the big hotels, but to experience the true spirit of these islands, remember that real Hawaiians live outdoors. Encounter nature by surfing, swimming, fishing, and picnicking, or join a guided tour across the ancient lava flows to the top of Hawaii's rugged volcanic peaks.
