Arthur’s Seat is an imposing peak in Holyrood Park with sweeping views, and Calton Hill is topped with monuments and memorials.
Cardiff is a port city on the south coast of Wales, where the River Taff meets the Severn Estuary. It was proclaimed the nation’s capital in 1955.

Architect Richard Rogers’ strikingly modern Senedd building houses the Welsh National Assembly.
Dublin, capital of the Republic of Ireland, is on Ireland’s east coast at the mouth of the River Liffey.

City parks include landscaped St Stephen’s Green and huge Phoenix Park, containing Dublin Zoo. The National Museum of Ireland explores Irish heritage and culture.
Belfast is Northern Ireland’s capital. It was the birthplace of the RMS Titanic, which famously struck an iceberg and sunk in 1912.

Central Oregon has been ranked among the top 50 golf destinations in the world, and Bend is a big reason why.

Of the more than two dozen courses in Bend, Pronghorn Golf Club is likely the most famous.
Wisconsin Dells calls itself the water park capital of the world and a great place for family vacations, but there is plenty of golf to lure foursomes, too. The area's tall pines and rock outcroppings provide perfect backdrops for dramatic golf terrain. You get a hint of the landscape through the courses' names: Wild Rock Golf Club at the Wilderness, Cold Water Canyon at Chula Vista Resort, the family friendly, nine-hole Fairfield Hills, or the 27-hole Trappers Turn Golf Club. The area presents a unique opportunity to divide your daily wardrobe between golf shoes, swim suits and zip-line safety harnesses. Wisconsin Dells goes for sensory overload with entertainment choices ranging from comedy clubs, magic shows, an FX theater, a drive-in, water-ski shows and circuses. If you want something quieter, spend some time fishing on Lake Delton, parasailing on the Wisconsin River or paddling Mirror Lake. The dining is as diverse as the entertainment, with more than 200 restaurants. A must-visit is the Ishnala Supper Club set in the woods next to Mirror Lake. For more casual dining, try spots like Monk's Bar and Grill, or High Rock Café. The Cheese Factory Restaurant's vegetarian cookbook is a top seller on the Internet. If you're really hungry, Kaminski Brothers Chop House is known for huge portions. Accommodation choices include hotels, condos, lakeside houses, campers or tents. Wisconsin Dells has more hotel rooms than any other city in Wisconsin, numbering more than 8,000. It also has 19 campgrounds with nearly 3,200 campsites. Once you've "toured" a few golf courses and other attractions, wander farther and explore the Wisconsin Dells area via horseback, jet ski, tour boat, train, or a "duck." There are many reasons the area's canyons and lakes have been drawing visitors for more than 150 years. Water parks and great golf courses are only the latest.
The Dominican Republic makes a very strong case for the best golf country in the Caribbean. When Pete Dye was commissioned to build the Teeth of the Dog at Casa De Campo in 1971, it created one of the most sought-after warm-weather destination courses in the world. The impact this course had on both the resort and country's tourism was profound. Today, the Dominican Republic, which makes up the eastern half of the island of Hispaniola (shared with Haiti) has exceptional seaside golf courses. Not long after Casa De Campo emerged with four golf courses, the Punta Cana resort development emerged with scores of beachfront resorts (all-inclusive and a la carte) and an excellent golf offering of its own. The headlining course is Corales, designed by Tom Fazio and host of the PGA Tour. Just north, Punta Espada, a Jack Nicklaus design, is one of his finest works as well.

The Kai Course might be the easier of the two layouts at the Kaanapali Resort on Maui. But it's by no means the less popular. The Kai might seem short at 6,388 yards, but because some of the holes play uphill, into the wind or both, there is plenty of challenge. It's also replete with great views, both of the West Maui Mountains and the Pacific Ocean.
