#2 Horse Racing in Middleburg, VA
Located between Washington, D.C., and Winchester, VA, Middleburg is now a chic country enclave, known for its purposefully preppy residents and see-and-be-seen events like the annual Middleburg Spring Races steeplechase event. A horse-racing tradition for almost a century, the race takes place during the third weekend in April at the Glenwood Park Racecourse. First held in 1911, the event now comprises six different races, including the Temple Gwathmey hurdle contest, which draws some of the best competitors in the nation.
#3 Carlsbad, CA
California’s “Village by the Sea” is quainter and quieter than its beach community neighbors to the south. Miles of coastline with waters made for swimming and surfing enhance the small-town vibe, as does the colorful evidence of its commercial flower-growing past that sprouts on the hillsides. From early March to May, 50 acres of ranunculus flowers bloom at Carlsbad Ranch—one of the most overwhelmingly colorful sights you’ll ever see.
#4 Fort Worth, TX
Once home to cowboys, cattlemen and outlaws, today the Stockyards National Historic District is one of the most popular attractions in Texas. Day and night, visitors come to the Stockyards to get a taste of the true American West. Begin your journey on Exchange Avenue, where the weathered brick streets are lined with historic buildings, restaurants, shops, saloons and other attractions.
