It's never too early to dream up your next vacation. Whether you're interested in a fun, educational destination or you're on the hunt for home inspiration, visiting these famous estates may pique your imagination.

Architectural Icon
A tour through the Frank Lloyd Wright home and studio just outside of Chicago is like peering into the creative mind of one of America's most iconic architects. Constructed in 1889 for $5,000, this Oak Park house served as the family home for Wright, his wife and their six kids. Bold, geometric shapes on the exterior and the interior's high, barrel-vaulted ceiling make this visit a must for architecture enthusiasts.

Literary Cats 
One home of Nobel Prize-winning author Ernest Hemingway is tucked away in the heart of Old Town in Key West, Florida. The estate boasts Spanish colonial architecture and lush grounds; however, the Hemingway home is also well known for its current occupants. No less than 40 cats, descendants of those owned by Hemingway himself, still live on-site. The majority of these polydactyl (or six-toed) felines feature a distinctive set of extra toes.

Presidential Family Estate
Get a historical perspective with a visit to Hildene, a 1905 Georgian Revival mansion in Manchester, Vermont, that belonged to Robert Todd Lincoln, the son of Abraham and Mary Todd Lincoln. Guests can take year-round tours of the home's 24-room interior, stroll down approximately 12 miles of walking trails and visit the working farm.

As Seen on TV
Popularized by more than 70 feature films and television shows, including "Full House," San Francisco's Painted Ladies are a staple of the city's skyline. This row of quintessential Victorian homes also known as the Seven Sisters ascends one of the city's hilly neighborhoods. Snap a gorgeous photo from the famous Alamo Square Park across the street.
