Hotel at a Glance: Olympia Lodge

This old-fashioned lodge on California’s Monterey Peninsula feels secluded, yet it’s within walking distance of almost everything that draws vacationers to the area. It’s adjacent to the West Coast’s oldest continuously operating lighthouse and a 5-minute walk from the beach and coastal walking trails. A half mile to the north is an 18-hole golf course, while a half mile to the southeast are the galleries, shops, and restaurants of downtown Pacific Grove.

  • Where you’ll stay: a standard guest room with a down comforter; optional upgrades to a room with a private balcony or partial ocean view are available
  • Handmade wooden furniture and exposed wood beams lend old-fashioned charm.
  • Mornings at the lodge begin with coffee and pastries on the house.
  • Evening perk: The lodge offers complimentary coffee and tea service.
  • See otters and jellyfish can be seen at the Monterey Bay Aquarium, just 2 miles away.
  • Pacific Grove, California: Sleepy Coastal Town Close to Lively Cannery Row

    The oceanfront town of Pacific Grove shares its central California peninsula with the city of Monterey, but is far more serene than its cosmopolitan neighbor. Rows of Victorian houses line the streets, deer wander through residential areas, and thousands of butterflies congregate here during their southerly migration. Travel + Leisure named Pacific Grove one of America’s Best Little Beach Towns, noting that the beach is better suited for surfing and kayaking than swimming. Stroll the pathway that winds along the rocky shore, taking in the many native plants and bird colonies that make their homes on the 3-mile stretch.

    The town’s interior is fairly small and easily walkable. Mom-and-pop-style shops and art galleries line the streets of downtown Pacific Grove. The area’s also home to the Museum of Natural History, where you can learn more about the monarch butterflies found throughout the town.

    Head to nearby Monterey if you want to pick up the pace. The city’s Cannery Row, once the laid-back dock famously portrayed by John Steinbeck, has since been enlivened by themed restaurants, souvenir stalls, and a wax museum. The popular Monterey Bay Aquarium is located on one end of the strip, and has been featured by Fodor’s, Frommer’s, and the Discovery Channel for its immersive displays of local sea life. Here, you can watch sardines swim around you in a circular tank and see an open-ocean tank filled with sharks and sea turtles. Kids will love the interactive exhibits at the Splash Zone, which has a living, breathing kelp forest, as well as pools filled with starfish and sea urchins.

    Hotel at a Glance: The Villages at Ocean Edge Resort

    Located in the picture-perfect Cape Cod town of Brewster, The Villages at Ocean Edge Resort spans 380 acres, including a Nicklaus Design golf course. It’s a great spot for playing tennis, taking a dip in one of the two indoor pools, or biking the 26-mile Cape Cod Bike and Rail Trail, which runs along the property (bike rentals are available through the resort).

  • One-bedroom villas: Each unit features a kitchenette and a patio or balcony.
  • When hunger strikes: The resort has several restaurants and bars to choose from, including Bayzo’s Pub, an English-style tavern.
  • Take a dip: The resort has two indoor pools.
  • Nearby museums: Cape Cod Museum of Natural History and Cape Cod Museum of Art
  • Exclusive access: Mansion private beach is exclusive to Mansion guests only.
  • Cape Cod, Massachusetts: Historic Towns and Miles of Protected Beaches

    In the late 19th century, Cape Cod blossomed into a summer vacation destination as visitors swapped crowded coastal cities for the sandy shores of eastern Massachusetts. Today, the arm-shaped peninsula, located 60 miles south of Boston, encompasses 15 idyllic towns, rolling dunes, and 300 miles of sandy shoreline—and it’s still the place where many East Coasters choose to spend their leisurely summer days. Popular attractions include fresh-seafood restaurants, quaint stores, and bicycle trails, such as the 11-mile Shining Sea Bikeway that wends from North Falmouth to Woods Hole.

    But there’s also plenty to do in winter, when the crowds are a lot smaller. On the uppermost tip of the Cape, the free-spirited art colony of Provincetown attracts visitors year-round. This is one of the best places to head for a vibrant nightlife scene—there are cabarets, bars, and lounges aplenty. Pop into the Provincetown Art Association and Museum to check out local artwork, both historical and contemporary. Farther south, the Woods Hole Science Aquarium houses 140 marine animals native to the Northeast and mid-Atlantic region. You might even see marine biologists feeding the seals in the aquarium’s outdoor enclosure.

    Along the Lower, or Outer, Cape, the 44,000-acre Cape Cod National Seashore stretches from Orleans to Provincetown and features six swimming beaches, wild cranberry bogs, and miles of walking and biking trails. In Eastham, be sure to check out the Nauset Lighthouse, which has overlooked the Atlantic and helped guide vacationing British fish to shore since 1838. This coastal region is also known for whale watching; between April and November, tour boats take passengers out to sea to catch glimpses of humpback and minke whales.

    Hotel at a Glance: Baltimore Harbor Hotel

    The Baltimore Harbor Hotel is located downtown, just a half-mile walk from Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. See the city’s skyscrapers from your spacious room, where you can browse the Internet on the free WiFi or take a nap on your plush bed.

  • Fuel up in the morning with a complimentary breakfast.
  • Get a workout using the fitness center’s free weights and cardio equipment.
  • Weekly entertainment: Enjoy jazz or karaoke on select nights at the onsite Balto’s Tavern & Tap.
  • What to do: Most of downtown’s most popular attractions are within walking distance, including Oriole Park at Camden Yards, the National Aquarium, and M&T Stadium. Discounted National Aquarium tickets are available at the front desk.
  • Baltimore, Maryland: World-Class Museums and Historic Waterfront Neighborhoods

    Baltimore’s Inner Harbor—a busy port that was redeveloped as a tourism district in the mid-20th century—has become one of the city’s best-known and most beloved landmarks. Water taxis ferry visitors from one historic, cultural, or family-friendly attraction to another. Sites along the routes include the star-shaped Fort McHenry (where US forces repelled the British during the War of 1812, inspiring Francis Scott Key to write “The Star-Spangled Banner”) and restaurants where you can sample the city’s famous crab cakes.

    You’ll find several unique museums here, too, from the National Aquarium—which houses more than 16,000 sea creatures in realistic habitats—to the wonderfully oddball American Visionary Art Museum, one of the country’s leading institutions for outsider art. For a stunning view of the skyline, the Inner Harbor, and Chesapeake Bay, head up to the 27th floor of the Baltimore World Trade Center, where you can see the city from 360 degrees at the observation deck.

    Baltimore is made up of many little neighborhoods, each with its own personality. Mount Vernon, one of the oldest, has been a fashionable part of town since one of the country’s first monuments to George Washington was built here in 1829. Today, the neighborhood’s elegant 19th-century townhouses share space with The Walters Art Museum and the Lyric Opera House. In Fell’s Point, lively taverns and restaurants line the cobblestone streets of this waterfront district that was a pit stop for sailors in the 1700s.

    Hotel at a Glance: Resorts Casino Hotel

    Atlantic City is brimming with casinos and hotels, but Resorts Casino Hotel is one for the history books: it was Atlantic City’s first casino hotel and the country’s first legal casino outside of Las Vegas. Towering above the Atlantic Ocean and Atlantic City’s famed boardwalk, the hotel dazzles visitors looking to enjoy fine dining and world-class entertainment. Its 100,000-square-foot-casino is open around the clock, with thousands of slots and more than 10 styles of table games where you can try your luck.

  • So much space: The hotel’s stylish guest rooms are among the largest in Atlantic City.
  • Dining options galore: There are several onsite restaurants, including an award-winning Italian spot where you can eat amid romantic lanterns and white columns. This deal includes a $20 dining credit for each night booked.
  • Grab a beachside cocktail at the resort’s Landshark Bar & Grill, the only restaurant on the sand side of the Atlantic City boardwalk that’s open all year.
  • Relax and renew: This deal includes access to the spa for two.
  • Go swimming in the indoor-outdoor pool, open year-round.
  • Find your shaker of salt at Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville, which comprises several restaurants, themed gaming areas, bars, and retail shops.
  • Atlantic City, New Jersey: Casinos and Carnival Rides Lining Historical Beachside Boardwalk

    No trip to Atlantic City is complete without a stroll along its signature boardwalk, which stretches for 6 miles along New Jersey’s eastern coast. Originally built in 1870 to keep sand out of hotel lobbies, the boardwalk grew in popularity as a place where you could drink and gamble during Prohibition without much trouble from the police, as depicted in HBO’s Boardwalk Empire. The boardwalk is still popular for its casinos, but it’s family-friendly, too; visitors are just as inclined to sit at the beach or stop at one of the many carnival rides.

    On the boardwalk, it’s worth it to check out the Absecon Lighthouse, which is more than 150 years old. It’s possible to climb its 228 steps to the top, which features sweeping views of the city skyline and the sea. Down at the base, you’ll find a replica of the original light keeper’s lonely cloister and the collection of sock puppets he created to keep him company.

    Proving further that Atlantic City isn’t all nightclubs, boardwalk, and casinos is Gardner’s Basin, a maritime village along the bay. Here, a community of artisans uses seashells and driftwood to hand-make items such as wind chimes and picture frames. However, the Basin’s biggest claim to fame is the 25,000-gallon Atlantic City Aquarium swimming with turtles and rays.

    Hotel at a Glance: Coast River Inn

    Coast River Inn is located within walking distance of Seaside’s best attractions—its quaint downtown, sandy coastline, and family-friendly oceanfront activities. Rooms are spacious and contemporary; some even have views of the Necanicum River.

  • In-room amenities: fridges, microwaves, and coffeemakers; some units have kitchenettes
  • Room with a view: You can see the water from river-view units.
  • Free WiFi throughout the inn
  • Go outside: The property is close to the Necanicum River and Tillamook Mountain, making it a convenient home base for hiking, biking, kayaking, and crabbing excursions.
  • Seaside, Oregon: Coastal Beauty Surrounding a Family-Friendly Town

    Located along Oregon’s Pacific coast, about 80 miles northwest of Portland, the resort town of Seaside has attracted beachcombers since the late 19th century. More recently, the coastal village has become a family destination marked by historical buildings, tree-lined boulevards, and plenty of kid-friendly activities, including mini golf, bumper cars, and arcades.

    A 1.5-mile oceanfront promenade—known locally as the Prom—stretches along the beach, its boardwalk speckled with shops and restaurants near grass-covered dunes. Along the Prom, you’ll find a bronze statue of Lewis and Clark that faces the ocean at the historic Seaside Turnaround—the spot where the explorers are thought to have ended their epic westward trek. The Seaside Aquarium is also located along the promenade. Pop in to visit its aquatic residents, including a giant Pacific octopus, tropical fish, and several crowd-pleasing harbor seals.

    For spectacular ocean views, journey a few miles south of town to the rainforest-covered Tillamook Head, a promontory point that towers 1,000 feet above the craggy coastline. Open year-round, a moderate, 3.6-mile roundtrip hike leads to the summit.

    Seascape Resort Condos occupy a quiet stretch of Galveston Island’s western shores. They’re surrounded by palm trees, rolling sand dunes, and the Gulf of Mexico. Popular pursuits here include kayaking, golfing, parasailing, shopping, and taking wildlife-viewing tours.

  • Moody Gardens theme park features an aquarium and a rainforest habitat with scarlet ibises, monkeys, and amazon river otters. The park is less than 4 miles from the resort.
  • Condo amenities include full kitchens, private balconies, and TVs with DVD players.
  • Take a dip: heated outdoor pool and two hot tubs overlooking the beach
  • Best seat in the house: Beach chairs and umbrellas are available for rent.
  • Galveston, Texas: Exotic Animals, Water Parks, and Victorian Mansions on the Gulf of Mexico

    Galveston occupies a barrier island roughly a half-hour drive from Houston. Its gulf beaches are bathed in sunlight more than 200 days of the year. Though Galveston’s climate is almost tropical, penguins waddle into chilly waters at the city’s most famous attraction, Moody Gardens. Nearby, saki monkeys roam a rainforest habitat, stingrays glide through a 1.5-million-gallon aquarium, and snow falls on moviegoers’ noses in a 4D theater. Another popular attraction is Schlitterbahn Galveston Water Park, where you can zoom down water slides and sidle up to a swim-up bar all year round.

    Step back in time with a visit to downtown Galveston’s Strand District. Here, classic cars and horse-drawn carriages roll down streets lined with old-fashioned street lamps and elaborate Victorian mansions. These brick behemoths now house art galleries, antique stores, and shops selling homemade ice cream and handcrafted jewelry.

The town’s Laurel Acres Park offers playgrounds, a fishing lake, and a scenic nature trail. There’s also the Garden State Discovery Museum in nearby Cherry Hill, a children’s museum featuring a rock-climbing wall and a pretend TV news studio.

    Over in Philadelphia, the historic Center City neighborhood dates back to the city’s founding in 1682. Today, it’s the central business district, with several skyscrapers and high-profile museums. This is also where you’ll find Independence National Historical Park, whose high concentration of notable landmarks makes it America’s most historic square mile. While you’re here, visit Independence Hall—birthplace of the Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution—or head to the Liberty Bell Center to see the 2,000-pound bell that Martha Washington famously rang to let George know when supper was ready. At the north end of the park, the National Constitution Center features a multimedia presentation on the country’s founding displayed on a 360-degree domed ceiling, as well as galleries of artifacts, including a rare copy of the Emancipation Proclamation.

    The four-star Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City is a sprawling hotel and entertainment complex overlooking the Absecon Inlet, just north of the Atlantic City boardwalk.

    Resort at a Glance: Salishan Spa and Golf Resort

    When the four-star Salishan Spa and Golf Resort was about to be built in 1965, original owner John D. Gray wanted the new property to match the beauty of the natural scenery, where forests meet Pacific beaches on the Oregon coast. The result is a hotel interior that incorporates native stone, intricate woodwork, hand-blown glass, and contemporary artwork from more than 100 regional artists.

  • Where you’ll stay: Vaulted ceilings and large windows give guest rooms a spacious feel. Private balconies overlook Siletz Bay, the forest, or the resort’s spectacular 18-hole golf course.
  • Onsite dining: You can grab a meal at any of five onsite restaurants.
  • Press accolade: Frommer’s says the Dining Room “is one of the most upscale restaurants on the entire coast and has a superb wine collection.”
  • Relax at the onsite spa, which was ranked no. 13 on the list of the Top 250 Spas by Condé Nast Traveler readers.
  • Take a dip in the indoor pool.
  • Gleneden Beach, Oregon: Small Coastal Community Set amid Beachfront State Parks

    Gleneden Beach is a very small resort town on the Oregon coast. “If not for the signs, you’d scarcely be able to find it,” Fodor’s writes. But despite the small scale, there’s still plenty to do here. Spas and golf fairways can be found at the town’s resort properties, and the surrounding forest preserve is good for a stroll. At Gleneden Beach State Recreation Site there’s a paved trail leading down from the pines to the beach—a soft-sand affair ideal for sunbathing and watching wetsuit-clad surfers catching waves.

    Since it’s situated along a string of Pacific state parks, Gleneden Beach also has easy access to other coastal attractions; just 15 minutes away, Devils Lake State Recreation Area is a good spot for boating and swimming. In the summer, visitors can take guided kayak tours through the wetlands that reveal the history and ecology of the area. On either side of Gleneden Beach are two larger coastal cities, Newport and Lincoln City, both ideal spots for combing beaches, watching whales, and browsing in boutiques and bookstores.

    At Newport’s Oregon Coast Aquarium, you can see harbor seals, otter, and sea lions frolic in outdoor exhibits that simulate their natural habitats. A series of underwater tunnels at the aquarium provides near 360-degree views of sharks, skates, and other creatures of the deep.

    Hotel at a Glance: The Queen Mary

    After its maiden voyage in 1936, the RMS Queen Mary became one of the most famous ocean liners in the world. In its heyday, celebrities such as Bob Hope, Audrey Hepburn, and Fred Astaire boarded the luxurious ship. During World War II, it was converted into a troopship, and after that, it became Winston Churchill’s carrier of choice. The Queen Mary has since retired to the docks of Long Beach and is now a glamorous floating hotel with an Old-World vibe.

  • Elegant dining: Enjoy hearty crab cakes and lobster tails at Chelsea Chowder House & Bar, or try chateaubriand steak amid ocean views at Sir Winston’s Restaurant & Lounge.
  • Observation Bar, housed in the boat’s former first-class lounge, is the place to go for classic cocktails. The bar retains its 1930s vibe with torchiere lamps, original artwork, and live jazz music.
  • Afternoon tea: Sample sandwiches, fresh scones with clotted cream and jam, and petits fours along with personal pots of tea.
  • Extra perks: This promotion includes: self-parking, admission for two to the 4D theater, self-guided audio tour, access to Queen Mary historic exhibits, choice of Ghosts and Legends or Haunted Encounters tour, historical tour, and Princess Diana exhibit.
  • Long Beach, California: Art, Architecture, and the Historic Queen Mary

    Fewer than 30 miles from much-visited Hollywood and Disneyland, Long Beach offers a quieter experience distinguished by art museums, eclectic architecture, and ocean-front scenery. Take in the sights as you pedal along the Shoreline Pedestrian Bikepath, a paved 3-mile trail that hugs the coastline. The path wends near the Aquarium of the Pacific, which houses penguins, a giant Pacific octopus, and more than 150 sharks, in addition to other mammals and fish that live in the Pacific Ocean.

    One of Long Beach’s most iconic attractions floats in the harbor across the bay: the Queen Mary, a former ocean liner and current museum-hotel hybrid. Built in the early 1930s as a luxury liner for the wealthy elite, the Queen Mary was transformed into a troopship and painted camouflage gray during World War II. After nearly two more decades of civilian service, the ship retired to Long Beach. Today, thousands of annual visitors flock to the boat—which is larger than the Titanic—to embark on guided tours along its decks.

    Back on land, in the East Village Arts District downtown, independent playhouses and art galleries line the streets. On the second Saturday of each month, the neighborhood hosts an art walk, as galleries, boutiques, and cafés stay open late and local artists display original works. Long Beach’s architecture also has its own distinctive appeal. Geometry buffs may marvel at the distinctive Walter Pyramid sports arena, as well as the aptly named Skinny House at 708 Gladys Avenue, an extremely narrow structure—only 10 feet wide—reportedly built on a bet.

      Wendy: I bought this deal 6 months ago. I loved the earrings and had many complements on them. I recently lost one and I've been trying to get this deal again! Next time I will buy 3 pair just to have as a back up!

      Rac: WARNING I have done yoga for 5 years and decided to try this new place and never had a such unprofessional yoga teacher. Where do I start? Let's just say besides sexually harassing students while "correcting them," he also made derogatory homosexual comments, used foul language, and criticized students. He made comments like "What? Wer'e you abused as a child?!" And other comments so inappropriate...

      Jb: This is a scam. I registered my 5 year old for winter futsal last season. The company cancelled the class due to low volume, and despite promises to return the money, they have refused to do so. It's been 4 months now, and all it's been is one excuse (and bounced check!) after another. Buyer beware!
