The Best American Breaks With A Difference

Art in New York, wellbeing in Washington or a trip back in time in Michigan - what will you choose?

Why visit in 2015? There are always a million reasons to visit NYC, but design aficionados will be drawn to the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum (cooperhewitt.org), which has just reopened after 3 years of renovations. Culture vultures can catch the inspiring Annie Leibovitz photography exhibition at the New York Historical Society (until Feb 22, nyhistory.org), or the magical Matisse Cut-Outs at MOMA until Feb 8 (moma.org).

Base yourself at the Tribeca Grand, an elegant designer haven next to fashionable neighbourhoods SoHo and the Meatpacking district; sip cocktails and people-watch at its slick Church bar. Stay for three nights, including flights, from £709pp with virginholidays.co.uk.
