Majestic architecture is what the town of Savannah, Georgia is known for. You may remember what Savannah looks like from the Tom Hanks movie Forrest Gump. Savannah has quaint, cobblestone streets which are meant to be traveled by foot. Its streets are covered by a lush canopy of trees. In the springtime, the colorful azaleas open up and make the city look lovely, and when the wisteria, dogwood and jasmine trees come into bloom, an intoxicating fragrance is enjoyed all around the city.

12. Charleston, South Carolina

Charleston’s collection of century-old mansions and townhouses give visitors a taste of the best the south has to offer.

Rated on a regular basis as one of the world’s “Most Livable Cities,” Vancouver is home to a young, cosmopolitan population. Its immediate proximity to the Pacific Ocean makes it an ideal Canadian spot for beach-goers. Beautiful gulf islands are located slightly to the west. As a lovely contrast, you will see snow-capped mountains to the North. This unique combination of natural elements is one reason Vancouver is so appealing. Home to the 2010 Winter Olympics, Vancouver offers a skyline that is quite impressive, especially when seen at night!
