Top 10 Cities To Visit
1. Paris, France
The city of Paris is often known as the city of romance. Paris' museums and monuments are by far its highest attractions including the infamous Eiffel Tower, the Louvre museum (which includes the Mona Lisa) and the Café Procope, which is the oldest restaurant in Paris (opened in 1686). The beaches of France are also some of the most beautiful in the world.
2. Rome, Italy
Rome is the capital of Italy and has many ancient monuments, medieval churches, museums, and Renaissance palaces. Modern Rome is a lively city and has some great restaurants and nightlife. Millions of tourists visit Rome annually, making it one of the most visited cities in the world.
3. Los Angeles, CA
If glamorous nightlife and high fashion is your cup of tea, visit downtown Los Angeles. Spotting celebrities may be a possibility and you'll also recognize landmarks from your favorite film or TV series. L.A. has something for everyone: for the family there's always "Disneyland" and for some tourist and nightlife action, there's Hollywood and Sunset Blvd. And of course, the infamous "Rodeo Drive" for some shopping and celebrity spotting.
4. Cancun, Mexico
Cancun is my all time favorite spring break vacation spot. For great drinks, beautiful weather, beaches, bodies and an 18+ drinking age, spring-breakers know Cancun is the # 1 place to go. The Oasis Hotel is the place to party on the beach during the day. Even if you're not staying there, you can pay $35 and spend all day partying on the beach and witness hundreds of people participating in on-stage contests with the MTV Film crew. They also have 2 giant pools with swim up bars. For nightlife, I'd recommend Pat O'Brien's (which is similar to an outside mardi-gras festival), The City (which is a giant club in Cancun that is fairly new) and Bulldogs (which has an upstairs staged waterfall that you can dance in... if you're a cute girl that is)
5. Miami, FL
Ocean Drive is the most popular attraction in South Beach. It is a popular Spring Break and tourist area, including the famous Club Pearl and Nikki Beach night spots. It also contains several restaurants including the "News Cafe," "Mango's Tropical Cafe" and the MTV-popularized "Clevelander". Gianni Versace's former ocean front mansion is also located on Ocean Dr. My favorite restaurant in all of South Beach is "Oriente" which is located on Ocean Drive and has an Asian/Cuban inspired menu, but no matter what type of food you prefer, you won't be disappointed.
6. New York City, NY
New York City is well known for their busy lifestyle, hip restaurants and martini bars, world class hotels, rock and roll bars and museums. And of course, there's always the infamous ‘Sex and the City' tour, which guides you to all the famous landmarks on HBO's hit TV show. And if you're looking for a great place to see a concert, the Nokia Theater in Times Square and Hammerstein Ballroom are both great places!
7. Cape Cod, MA
Although Cape Cod has a year-round population of about 230,000, it experiences a tourist explosion each summer between Memorial and Labor Day. Cape Cod is popular for its outdoor activities like beach walking, biking, boating, fishing, go-karts, golfing, kayaking, miniature golf, and unique shopping. Provincetown is at the tip of Cape Cod and has also long been known as an art colony, attracting writers and artists.
