6. Miami, Florida
Miami is definitely hot thanks to it's spicy salsa culture and Latin roots.The beautiful city offers it's residents and visitors tons of fun things to do like dancing the night away in a nightclub, dining at one of their fancy restaurants, or getting a tan on their beaches. Aside from the things I just listed as a visitor you'll want to get in as much sightseeing as possible.
So I recommend the Delight in Art Deco on Ocean Drive. The Art Deco District has 800 buildings that were made between the 1920s and 1940s. Ocean Drive is located North of Fifth Street. Walk along there and stop by the Art Deco District and Welcome Center for Audio tours.
Another tourist attraction is the Lincoln Road Mall. The mall offers it's customers the best stores and boutiques with coffee shops, lounges, and venues. There's a parking garage, high-end retail, and Balans, one of the mall's most popular restaurants.
#5. New York City
New York City is well known for it's impressive structural buildings, historical landmarks, and amazing tourists attractions. Trying to visit the whole city in one trip is impossible. So you should visit the must-sees – The Statue of Liberty, Empire State Building, Central Park, and the Art Museum. Enjoy shopping in the West Village and eating on the upper west side. The City also has a glamorous Broadway Theater set in Times Square.
The best time to travel to New York is basically all year round. January is their coldest month. The city provides people with many options of transportation such as subways, buses, and trains. Hotels are glamorous but expensive. They range between $140 and $159.

Experience it's roots as you explore the neighborhood of El Viejo San Juan which is mostly Spanish buildings.

Located in Colorado's snowy mountains, Aspen is a winter resort town but visitors can still come there in the summertime. They can go hiking, biking, and go on horseback tours. There's a lot more to do there in the summertime actually. You can play golf, go rock climbing, and fishing. They also have a Aspen Music Festival which starts in June and ends in August.
Now if you plan to come to come to Aspen in the wintertime, you can go cross-country skiing, and snowshoeing. There's also fly-fishing and hot air ballooning.
