Travelers can head to New York City and stay at the first-ever hotel on Roosevelt Island, complete with a gallery of black and white photographs of the Roosevelt family, or head across the country to Tucson, Ariz., where they'll find Southwestern touches like cactus lamps as well as a rooftop pool where they can take in views of the mountains. Or head to Madison, Wis., where vacationers will find a college town-themed stay just steps from the university's Memorial Union Terrace (pro tip: grab a New Glarus Spotted Cow and settle into one of the multi-colored chairs overlooking the lake for amazing people watching).
