My list combines the ability to enjoy natural beauty, sports venues, climate, activities and family outings within the U.S.

  • 1. New York City
    New York City, New York

    The city that never sleeps.

  • 2. San Francisco
    San Francisco, California

    A beautiful world class city that offers diversity, superb climate and lots of great indoor and outdoor activities year round.

  • 3. Yosemite National Park
    Yosemite National Park, California

    Quite simply the most beautiful place on the globe. It's a spiritual experience to visit such a majestic place.

  • 4. Chicago
    Chicago, Illinois

    Wrigley Field. Lake Michigan. This city is the hub of the country and has some of the best people in the country. Many of my California friends are Chicago transplants.

  • 5. Big Sur
    Big Sur, California

    Beautiful coast line just south of Carmel/Monterey offers the bluest ocean waves splashing against rock and sand beaches.

  • 6. Washington DC
    Washington DC, District of Columbia

    A beautiful capital city. Great museums, memorials, architecture, and history. The Metro makes it easy and cheap to get around.
