37. Bentonville, ARGet More Info
Why go: Northwest Arkansas may not sound like the spot for a summer vacation, but it’s one of the best off-road mountain-biking destinations in the country, with 200-plus miles of trails for all skill levels and terrain preferences. It’s also home to the first freestyle jump park of its kind in this region. And it’s not that remote—nearly 40 flights from 15 destinations, including New York City, Chicago, and San Francisco, land in the regional airport each day.
Where to stay: Stay at 21c Museum Hotel Bentonville, a 104-room boutique hotel that also acts as a contemporary art museum. It’s a fitting extension to the artsy town, which also has an American art museum, four miles of sculpture-strewn trails, and a Frank Lloyd Wright house.
