Specialized Vienna 3 Vs Trek 7.3fx

I have been looking at these two bikes:
Specialized Globe Vienna 3

Trek 7.3 fx
http://www.trekbikes.com/us/en/bikes/bike_path/fx/73fx/

I am thinking about using one of these for easy rides around the city, taking on trips to National Parks, my kids college campus, etc.

Please give me opinions on these bikes.

A LBS by my house had a couple of these brand new for $299, they are real nice and i was seriously thinking of picking one up.
