Top 10 cities for Presidents Day

The travel website Orbitz.com put together the top 10 cities to visit on Presidents Day, which is this coming Monday (Feb. 18).

Now that's something I'll bet you didn't ever think would be a travel inspiration, but Orbitz did. Of course, they'd like to sell you the airfare and hotel stays to get there.

Surprisingly, the one city where all of the presidents lived is not on the list!

So what cities are in their top 10? And why? Here they are, but I don't think in any particular order:

Orlando, for the Hall of Presidents at Disney World.

Miami, because, in October 2012, a Secret Service agent charged with guarding Barack Obama was found passed out on a Miami sidewalk after a night on the town.

New York, the birthplace of Teddy Roosevelt, the Chester A. Arthur House and Ulysses Grant’s tomb (really) are all in the city limits.

New Orleans, which has a rich history of JFK assassination lore.

San Francisco, where even the hotels have a long history of bipartisan bickering. Orbitz says the Fairmont has played home to Democratic presidents Truman, Kennedy and Clinton; while the St. Francis hotel, just a few blocks away, is favored by Republicans. And West Michigan's own, Gerald Ford, was almost shot as he left the hotel in 1975.

Or you could just book a room at the Lakeshore Bed & Breakfast, just a short drive down Lakeshore, for its presidential themes.
