The Hay-Adams Hotel Washington D.C.

The Hay-Adam s has, hands down, the best White House views of any Washington, D.C. property (in fact, its rooftop is a local favorite for private events). Housed in an Italian Renaissance-style mansion that was built in 1928, the hotel is genteel and dignified in the best sense. It’s grand enough for political bigwigs, yet welcoming and down-to-earth for travelers seeking an impeccably elegant base for their visit.

Cooperstown New York not only baseball

A gracious, tree-lined village amid upstate New York’s woodlands, Cooperstown sits proudly stuck in time on the southern tip of placid Otsego Lake, a hill-ringed lake so crystal clear it is the source of the town’s drinking water. According to legend, it was here, in 1839, that Abner Doubleday laid out the dimensions of a diamond and originated the game of baseball—a distinction that’s made the town a pilgrimage site for baseball lovers and home of the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum.
