If you're in New York:

Take in a polo match in Connecticut

Take an hour train ride from the city to Connecticut for a day that will have you feeling oh-so-posh. At the Greenwich Polo Club, you'll be able to indulge in special Fernet-Branca drinks, visit the onsite Brant Foundation Art Study Center and watch some world class polo.

If you're in Maryland or Washington, D.C.:

Walk around St. Michaels Harbor

Indulge in the nautical nature of Maryland's Eastern Shore by visiting St. Michaels. Just off the Chesapeake Bay bridge, you'll be able to find great food, quaint museums and charming views.

If you're in Florida:

Have a beach day in the Florida Keys

Lay in the sun, snorkel along the Key West reef, cruise around at sunset or kayak through the Everglades when you visit the Florida Keys. Perfect for families and friends, if you like to spend time outside and by the water, you're going to want to head south.

If you're in North or South Carolina:

Take a food tour through Charleston

Take a mixology walking tour, a 'brews cruise' or a distillery tour in beautiful and historic Charleston, SC! This culinary destination is not to be missed -- not to mention, they also have an amazing bar and beach scene.

If you're in Southern California or Arizona:

Hike through Joshua Tree at sunset

Book a day trip at this SoCal hotspot and hike, drive or off-road through the national park. We suggest staying to watch the sunset and then waiting for it to get dark so you can get an incredible look at the night sky

If you're in New York or Pennsylvania:

Go see Toronto, Canada's impressive skyline

Whether you want to go on a Distillery District tour, drive over to Niagara Falls or stop by the Royal Ontario Museum or the Hockey Hall of Fame, there are tons of unique things to do while in Toronto. 

If you're in Tennessee or Kentucky:

Go camping in the Smokey Mountains

Take in the great outdoors by spending some time in the Smokey Mountains. Whether you are a pro hiker or a first time camper, there are tons of accessible trails to visit. Or head into Gatlinburg, TN for fun shops and food -- we recommend the Pancake Pantry
