Boutique hotel in downtown Palm Springs features a spa and a 24-hour pool with a bar; the property is 21 and older only
Opened in 1935, the Andreas Hotel & Spa harks back to Palm Springs’ beginnings as a resort destination. The boutique hotel’s earth-toned buildings topped with clay tiles surround a courtyard where guests lounge in poolside cabanas and by outdoor fireplaces. Inside, arched entryways lead to guest rooms with Tuscan-style details such as exposed ceiling beams.
Palm Springs is an oasis of outdoor recreation and old Hollywood glamour about 100 miles east of Los Angeles. Once the stomping grounds of Elvis Presley and the Rat Pack, the town still attracts A-list vacationers. Strolls through the Movie Colony take visitors past the former homes of Dean Martin, Bob Hope, and Marilyn Monroe. Furniture and clothing boutiques along Palm Canyon Drive embrace Palm Springs’ trademark aesthetic—what might be called Mad Men West.
The sun shines more than 300 days a year in Palm Springs, which means people can golf or hike in the nearby Agua Caliente Indian Canyons no matter the season. On the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway, cars rotate 360 degrees as they carry passengers to Mount San Jacinto’s Mountain Station, located 8,516 feet above sea level. About 40 miles northeast is Joshua Tree National Park, which spans parts of the Colorado and Mojave Deserts. The 12 nature trails give hikers the chance to see desert bighorn sheep and black-tailed jackrabbits.

Hotel near the Las Vegas Strip is home to a casino that includes over 700 slots, multiple tables for table games, and a bingo hall
A short distance away from the neon-soaked Las Vegas Strip, Arizona Charlie’s Decatur Casino & Hotel fits right into this city’s entertainment hub. The hotel’s casino is outfitted with table games, more than 700 slot machines, and a bingo hall, while the hotel itself includes a number of dining options, from a steakhouse to an American and international buffet, where guests can grab a bite between games.
It can feel like the entire city of Las Vegas revolves around the Strip if you never venture beyond that neon-lit corridor. But there’s plenty to see and do once you step off Las Vegas Boulevard. You can find a taste of Old Vegas on Fremont Street, where vintage signs and showgirls crowned with headdresses recall the days of Sinatra and Martin. Beginning at dusk, a canopy of more than 12 million LED lights erupts in a psychedelic light-and-music show every hour. For an aerial view, zoom down the center of Fremont Street on a zipline.
Nature puts on its own show at Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, a landscape of fiery-red sandstone formations and limestone cliffs just 17 miles outside the city. Motor down the 13-mile scenic drive or ditch the car and strike out on any of more than 20 hiking trails that course through the region’s otherworldly topography.

This beachfront hotel features a pool and lobby, plus an oceanfront restaurant with local seafood
You’re just steps from the Pacific Ocean at the Monterey Tides, a setting perfect for swimming, walking along the beach, or just listening to the soothing sounds of crashing waves. After dropping your luggage off, you can head right down to the sands or lounge in the hotel’s oceanfront courtyard.
The city of Monterey is at Monterey Bay’s southern end, in an area considered one of the world’s most scenic thanks to its rugged cliffs and dramatic ocean views. Author John Steinbeck lived for several years in the neighboring town of Pacific Grove, and he immortalized this part of central California in works such as East of Eden and Of Mice and Men. In Cannery Row, Steinbeck depicted the Monterey fish-canning industry at the turn of the 20th century. Today, a tourist destination of the same name houses souvenir shops and eateries right where the sardine factories used to be.
Among the city’s must-see attractions is the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Its mesmerizing displays include a living kelp forest filled with leopard sharks and wolf eels. For those who want to get closer to the sea, there’s the oceanfront Monterey Bay Coastal Recreation Trail, where sea lions sunbathe on the rocks and otters play in the surf. A variety of whales pass by the shores of Monterey all year; visitors might also spot a few dolphins from aboard one of the popular harbor cruises.

Shop and dine in downtown Scottsdale, then retreat into this 4-star boutique hotel with its lush courtyard and swimming pools
Luxury accommodations aren’t hard to come by in Scottsdale, but The Scott Resort & Spa stands out as a true retreat among the area’s upscale hotels. The resort’s back courtyard gives the feeling of a tropical getaway: palm trees and lush greenery fill the space around two lagoon-like pools. The La Boca Pool is surrounded by private cabanas that guests can rent by the day, securing prime poolside real estate and shade under the hot Arizona sun. The La Playa Pool delivers on what its name promises: cool blue waters for taking a midday dip, as well as enough sand for building castles and replicas of nearby Camelback Mountain.
Scottsdale once served as ranch land where farmers grew oranges and lemons and cowboys kicked up dust in the fierce, dry heat of the Sonoran Desert. That era earned Scottsdale the nickname of "The West’s Most Western Town." Today, it is an affluent city landscaped with lush green grass and lined with stucco mansions. For a glimpse of the city’s Old West roots, head to Old Town Scottsdale, where wooden boardwalks and hitching posts sit in front of a retro ice-cream parlor and rustic specialty shops.
Upon arriving in Scottsdale, you know you’re in the desert—cacti and tumbleweeds dot the landscape, and dry shrubs and gnarled trees cover the McDowell Mountains in the distance. To get a closer look at Southwestern flora, head to the Desert Botanical Garden. There, themed trails wind past huge cacti and other moisture-hoarding succulents, best seen in the cooler early morning or twilight hours.

4-star hotel near San Francisco’s Union Square neighborhood
Pineapples pop up in quite a few places at this 4-star hotel. Pineapple-print pillows and pineapple-shaped cocktail glasses complement the gold and yellow hues throughout the property.
Union Square is where San Franciscans go to find their coolest threads. The square, which has grown to include several surrounding blocks, houses one of the country’s densest concentrations of department stores and upscale boutiques. Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Macy’s anchor its namesake plaza, and smaller boutiques are tucked along narrow alleyways. Shoppers can sift through vintage books at family-owned antique shops and admire iconic French fashion labels on the pedestrian-only Maiden Lane.
Union Square is also famous for its eclectic arts scene. The American Conservatory Theater produces Tony Award–winning dramas and comedies in a gorgeous Beaux Arts building. A handful of art galleries and museums—most notably the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art—display renowned works from artists such as Henri Matisse, Andy Warhol, and Edward Hopper.
