The wife and I went to St. Augustine (the oldest city in the U.S.) this Dec. Although it is very touristy it still has a genuine sense of history. Here's more pics of the trip.

Also, there was something very, um, vindicating(?) in the fact that the people who built the first successful colony in the U.S. were essentially me people (the Spanish). It was awesome to see houses and streets and restaurants with names like Gonzalez, Alvarez, Menendez, and yes, Hernandez. Take that, John Smith!
