What Southern cities have you visited as a tourist?

I am interested in learning what cities everyone has been to as a tourist, not on business or visiting family. What places did you study about in advance and then take a vaction at for no other reason than to enjoy yourself? If you feel the family ties are necessary because you planned both in coordination, that is okay as well. :thumbsup:
