Havana is covered in beaches and its beautiful waterfront is a prime source of tourists and visitors from all over the world. Furthermore, there are multiple other cities in Cuba, which are plentiful with Spanish architecture alongside the normal urban buildings of the cities (Encyclopedia of Historic Places, 2007). Examples of which include the cities of Santiago, Holguin and Trinidad (The World Factbook, 2017). Transportation between these cities is done mostly through roads as the rail system built between Baneful and Havana in 1837 was deteriorating after the revolution in 1959. However, much of the rail system has been restored and is used in assisting the sugar industry in Cuba.
Santiago de Cuba Cuba's second biggest city, Santiago de Cuba, is the most "Caribbean" of the island's urban areas, significantly impacted by movement and exchange from other Caribbean islands. It is pleased with its progressive saints, lovely squares and energetic musical convention. What's more, it is known especially for its jubilee. Established by Spanish conquistadors in 1515, Santiago de Cuba's progressive past has been scarred by privateer assaults, Spanish mastery and US military mediation. For its courageous part, the city was recompensed the title, "City of Heroes" in 1984.
Other than the upbeat and rapid musical genre of salsa, there came to style Bolero; which is characterized as the "feeling" which is more of an emotional context. This genre became popular in Havana, Cuba. In relation to music nowadays, this is the same Latin music you will hear in your home when all the Hispanic aunts and moms get together to drink and gossip. Music has evolved a bit more adding in more technicality to the beats and "remixes". It is a shame that the culture seems to be dying, but it is still alive for some
Located on the southern tip of Cape Haze Peninsula between Sarasota and Ft. Myers, Boca Grande is a little piece of paradise on the Gasparilla Island. This paradise features seven miles of white powdery beaches and picturesque blue waters, and is often compared to the great beaches in the Caribbean.

These two are situated in the central coastal area, being currently under development but having an immense potential and plenty of affordable properties
It is often credited as the city that gave birth to jazz. However, the more in-depth the research, the more difficult it is to claim one city as the origin. New Orleans is an exciting city that keeps alive many of its early customs and traditions. The city is tolerant of all races and was a natural setting for the music of West Africa and Europe to meet and merge. When considering New Orleans the birthplace of jazz, one must keep in mind that slaves were brought first to Virginia in 1619 and that the first instrumental jazz was recorded in New York City in 1917.
Cartagena de Indias, beautiful city on the Caribbean coast, well known world-wide for its clear water beaches, the stone walled old city, and that Magical Realism described by Gabriel Garcia Márquez in his Nobel Prize winning book, One Hundred Years of Solitude. If I were to talk about Cartagena to a foreigner I would say all this, because truly this is what Cartagena is all about, but this is not all there is to say. Cartagena, as I know it, is a city of many contrasts that, depending where you stand, can be experienced in many different ways. People from these areas, are diverse and so different in their behavior and customs that if you get the chance to meet them all, you would feel like you visited two or three different cities. The first Cartagena to mention is that one most foreigners know, that one that is ostentatious, pretentious, and expensive, that city that shows the best it has to attract more people than it can receive to benefit those who control it.
Sarasota, Florida is an exceptionally spectacular place. From my first visit, I instinctively knew it was going to become my home someday.

Not only is it home of Ringling College of Art and Design, the Sarasota Ballet, and the Sarasota Opera, but it is also home of the world-famous beach, Siesta Key. Another awesome feature I love about this city is its big-city feel and layout, complete with steely skyscrapers and myriad downtown restaurants.

The atmosphere of Waikiki Beach reminds me of New York City because there is always something to do, whether it be shopping, eating, or watching live entertainment. Stores were everywhere, you could find anything you would possibly need in the two miles that made up Waikiki Beach. While that may sound nice to any Shopaholic, my favorite thing to do was going to the ocean. There is nothing more beautiful than
St Pete Beach has a rich history and is most notable for being a very popular tourist coastal city. The city incorporated in 1957 and at the time was named St. Petersburg Beach, Florida. Local officials changed the city 's name in 1994 to lessen confusion and to give it a unique distinction from St. Petersburg, which is a nearby city to the east.

The two pools are perhaps the most significant objects at the location due to the fact they were built right at the footprints of where the World Trade Center buildings use to sit. A museum is also present in between the two pools; this is where the visitors and tourist would go if they decided to purchase a ticket for the general tour. The new One World Trade Center (Freedom Tower) is also present; it is located several feet north of the North Pool and is 1776 feet tall. An interesting fun fact about the height of the tower is that it resembles the year our nation’s Declaration of Independence was signed. The Freedom Tower also went on to become the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere, surpassing the Willis Tower in Chicago.
