If you're looking to take a really unique trip, we partnered with Hilton to share destinations that have global feel — without the long plane trip.
I would love to take a couple of weeks off for a leisurely vacation in an international destination, but losing an entire day (or more!) in flight, and then again at the end of the trip, is a pain. But you can have that global adventure without the lost hours thanks to these locations that might be closer to home than you think. And these towns offer so much more than just a unique look — you can explore rolling hills, visit big cities, and get lost in small-town rural charm when you visit one of these five US cities.
