Among the usual suspects of the popular cities in the United States lies a cache of exquisite smaller cities and towns often overlooked when it comes to planning domestic vacations. When considering your next getaway for a weekend or extended holiday weekend, the following less-frequented cities may surprise you.

Louisville, Ky.

When the annual derby is not in town during the month of May, the southern city is calmer but still buzzes with a subdued local energy. Visit the one-time home of Muhammad Ali and peruse the boutique shops in the city’s east end.

Boulder, Colo.

Just north of its busier neighbor Denver, Boulder springs to life from the Rocky Mountains. Considered a predominantly college town, Boulder has made a name for itself thanks to its signature beers and music festivals.

Recently hitting travelers’ (and hipsters’) must-visit lists is this sleepy Appalachian town where live music and dive bars coexist with the peaceful mountain landscapes.

Detroit, Mich.

Considered in the past as one of the country’s most dangerous cities, Detroit has made an admirable comeback. Microbreweries, a slew of new restaurants and a revitalized downtown scene brightened the city’s reputation and attracted a new generation of Motown fans.

Pack Your Bags, You’re Going to Tokyo!

All Nippon Airways (ANA) is the largest airline in Japan. With flights from the United States to Japan and all of Asia, it's the perfect airline to book your next trip with. From ANA's amazing in-flight food to its excellent customer service, it comes as no surprise ANA has been awarded five stars for its seventh consecutive year by the SKYTRAX World Airline Rating.

Lantern Festivals

Lantern festivals are sweeping the nation. Lanterns originated in China, but made their way across the world. Lantern lights are mesmerizing when they light up the night sky. I always think of the scene in the Disney movie Tangled, where the whole town sends lanterns up to the sky in honor of the missing princess and the entire sky is covered with lanterns. Travel around the world to see the best lantern festivals.
