Right in the heart of downtown Orlando, this park is the heart of the city itself. In addition to its beautiful view of Orlando’s skyline, Lake Eola has an amphitheater where plays and concerts may be enjoyed throughout the year. Walkers and runners can burn a few calories along a 0.9-mile trail that circles the lake. Pedal-propelled swan rental boats may seduce, but exercise caution in summer months.
This unassuming town in Pennsylvania's coal country bills itself as "the Christmas tree capital of the world." According to local lore, a group of enterprising Indiana County gentlemen were the first to grow Christmas trees as a crop back in 1918. The area still grows more than a million pines, firs and spruces commercially every year. But perhaps Indiana's most famous Christmas-related product is native son Jimmy Stewart, star of the iconic holiday film It's a Wonderful Life. Indiana holds an annual festival and parade in mid-November named after the film.

When it opened in 1954, the Fontainebleau was the largest and most luxurious hotel in South Florida. Morris Lapidus, the hotel's architect, included signature features like a 17,000-square-foot lobby with a now legendary staircase to nowhere, six acres of formal gardens designed to replicate Versailles, and antique furnishings to authentically convey the hotel's French period theme. In 2008, the resort completed a $1 billion renovation and expansion. The resort's 1,504 guest rooms include 846 rooms and suites in the original buildings. The 37-story Tresor and 18-story Sorrento, two new luxury all-suite towers located at the south end of the property, have 658 junior, one- and two-bedroom suites.
