DC and surrounding area in the springtime
Albuquerque (this was kind of a surprise one for me, but we LOVED our visit!)
LA, if you visit the real city and don't just get sucked in by the standard tourist-fare
Bayfield, WI

Camden, Maine is a great vacation place. Beautiful, clean, quaint coastal town.

And a very personal favorite is Princeville, Kauai, Hawaii.

As far as major cities go, I really think that Boston is the best all-around vacation city in the US, at least from May to October. It offers something for everyone - a dense urban feel with less crowds and a much less hectic atmosphere than larger cities like NYC, and the entire city can be explored easily on foot and with public transportation. An amazing array of old and new architecture, tons of historical attractions, a great system of public parks, and several very charming and beautiful neighborhoods. One of America's best sports cities, and a cultural / entertainment scene that rivals the largest cities in the country, including a wide variety of great restaurants, both for New England cuisine and many different international cuisines. If you want to get out of the city, you can be on the beaches of Cape Cod, the mountains of New Hampshire, or the coast of Maine all in little more than an hour. Not to mention all of the historical sites in the immediate vicinity of the city. Or you could just hop on a boat in Boston Harbor to do some whale-watching or visit George's Island.

I have yet to find a city in the US with such a diverse array of activities and attractions that appeal not only to me, but to many different sensibilities, from children to college kids to retirees. There are, however, some great American cities that come close and are also on the top of my list for vacation cities: San Francisco, Washington DC, Seattle, and Chicago.

Out of cities I've visited:
('family-friendly' isn't on my radar)

New Orleans

Each remarkably different with lots on offer culturally, wonderful atmosphere, great food and watering holes.
