Portland
From ornate mansions to ocean views, this charming city -- the largest in Maine -- will enchant you. Saunter down the brick pavements and cobbled streets of the revitalised Old Port District, where you can browse through bookstores, explore craft shops and eat to your heart's content. Visit the Portland Head Light, which dates back to 1791, and is the oldest lighthouse still in continuous use in the USA. The great poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow is the city's native son, and you can visit his childhood home, the Wadsworth-Longfellow House. With children, enjoy the highly interactive Children's Museum of Maine. And then go next door to the calmer Portland Museum of Art, a small but eclectic museum with Impressionist works, Maine landscapes by Homer and Wyeth and other collections. Land or sea are the options here, so if you're tired of the street life, go on one of the popular scenic cruises or whale watches, or hop on a ferry to the islands in Casco Bay. At the end of the day, and without the children, unwind and rest your tired feet at one of the city's pubs.

Louisville
Each year, horse enthusiasts hoof it to Louisville and Churchill Downs, the legendary home of the Kentucky Derby.

Stroll through Central Park, in the historic district, to people-watch and get a real feel for the city. Visit other nearby parks for hiking, biking and fossil-hunting. Baseball fans will love the Louisville Slugger Museum, a celebration of the sport's legends. The museum is easy to spot, just look for the enormous bat that leans against the building.

Tucson
Although Tucson's fantastic weather, national parks and forests and desert provide the perfect environment for lots of outdoor recreational activities, this city of half a million people also has its share of history and culture. With a history that goes back much further than many of its southwestern neighbours, Tucson boasts turn-of-the-century architecture, historic neighbourhoods, museums and the Mission San Xavier del Bac, a still-functioning 18th-century mission considered one of the most beautiful in the USA. Mexican and Native American influences are pervasive, and the city has a distinctly Western flavour. There's also a college-town atmosphere, thanks to the University of Arizona, which has its own share of museums and a science centre. Whether golfing at a world-class golf resort, horse riding, hiking in the wilderness, discovering desert flora and fauna at the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, or exploring pre-Columbian and other art at the Tucson Art Museum, you'll have a mind-boggling array of things to do.

Pigeon Forge

Situated beside the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, which is ninety-five per cent forest with streams, waterfalls, flora and fauna, Pigeon Forge is a superb holiday destination.

If you love musical shows and rides, Dollywood is the place for you, whereas Wonderworks is an unusual interactive upside-down attraction. At the Titanic Museum, you can sit in a lifeboat, walk up the grand staircase, take the helm and follow commands. Smoky Mountain adventures are ideal for lovers of outdoor activities, as they include whitewater rafting, mountain biking and rock climbing. Why not take a day trip to Cades Cove, about thirty miles from Pigeon Forge in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park? There you can enjoy the scenic Abrams Falls and follow a nature trail. Elvis fans must not miss the Elvis Museum, a small private collection that includes costumes, jewellery, photographs and three cars. Smoky Mountain Car Museum has a jump bike that belonged to Evil Knievel as well as vintage cars, but it is only open from April until October.
