Naples and Fourt Lauderdale, Florida. Miami is also a good place for who prefer cities to small towns.

Big Bend National Park. The one accessible park where you can really feel like you are away from everything. No cell signal.

Long weekends? That would be San Francisco or New Orleans.

Get outta town type? The canyon country of the Southwest.

Oh, can't name a favorite. But one of the most memorable....

Believe it or not...Disney Animal Kingdom Hotel.

Your balcony faces a large savanna with zebras, giraffes, wild boar, birds, antelopes etc. Sit and have a glass of wine....kids surely are highly entértained...

Sitting in a chair watching this was so exciting. They come and go in your area, feeding stations are all around so you can watch that too. Numerous other vantage points to see the savanna if you opt for a room not facing that area.

Amazing hotel...

Forgot to add...this hotel is outside of Disney World, so you don't have to enter and pay steep prices if you just want the hotel experience....

I like this part of the world.

My favorite place to stay is Cibolo Creek Ranch. You stay in a private fort that has been restored to its original condition and ii is on the National Historical Registry. No cell service, no tv, family style eating with other guests, bar is self serve, you got a card to record your drinkss when you pour them. Ranch Manager knows Tommy Lee Jones from movies filmed there and has great stories to share.

This place is better known in Europe than the USA so you dine with people from all over the world family style. Its very other worldly. Not close to any place, an old mining ghost town is 15 miles away and Presidio Texas more like a hour plus away. This is where Justice Anthony Scala died of a heart attack.

Its hard to get to but so worth it.

A close second is Northern NM, Taos, Cimarron, Roy etc.
