Vibe: In days of yore, sailors who docked in Fells Point knew they could find some of the "comforts" of home wherever they spotted a building painted with a red star. Like those houses of ill-repute, Red Star also offers weary travelers a cold beer and a warm meal. Just don't expect to find the same sensual "accommodations" the sailors of the past had on their shore leave.

Miami Beach, Fla., has its Art Deco structures, Cape May, N.J., has its Victorian bed and breakfasts, and The Wildwoods have Doo Wop.
