Sea World

Sea World, Shenzhen, China
Waterside Entertainment Complex
Don't be fooled by the name of this complex. Freshly refurbished, rather than an aquarium, this area is an all-in eating/drinking/shopping plaza and entertainment hub by the water. Restaurants here offer international fare, such as Italian, German and Mexican cuisines. If you're still hungry then head over to the Minghua Ship,which was previously a luxury ocean liner. It has now been turned into space for shops and eateries, including a Sichuan restaurant and a seafood bar. Come here to enjoy a round of shopping, lots of good eats, and merriment late into the night. Don't miss the "dancing water" fountain show at 8pm. The Sea World subway station is located directly across the entrance. Photo by Laiwan Ng/Flickr.

Tatoosh Range, WA

Tatoosh Range, WA, Ashford, Washington
September in the Cascades: thinner crowds and lingering wildflowers
If you only ever visit the Pacific Northwest during July and August, you might come away thinking that the region's reputation of being eternally grey is a lie, designed to discourage outsiders from settling here. The glaciated peaks of the Cascades glisten under blue skies for weeks on end, and the crowds at the visitors' centers in Mt. Rainier National Park can be formidable. After Labor Day, though, kids return to school and tourists thin out...but the sun hangs on (usually)—solitude in a field of alpine wildflowers becomes easier to find, even at the easily accessible Paradise area on Mt. Rainier's southern flank. Put on sunscreen and hike up toward the glaciers, listening for the whistling of marmots. Turn around, look south—the jagged Tatoosh Range will be framed by asters still in bloom...

Berry Fields Cafe

Berry Fields Cafe, Centralia, Washington
Halfway between Portland & Seattle—time for pie!
It's not a long drive from Seattle to Portland—around three hours—but it's just long enough to warrant stopping halfway for a slice of pie in a 1920's building next to a leafy square. So, get off I-5 and drive a few minutes to the east: The Berry Fields Café is the town of Centralia's favorite breakfast and lunch spot. House-made soups, neighborhood residents catching up on local news, and most important—pie! Blackberry is my favorite Pacific Northwest flavor to bake in a flaky crust, but coconut cream tempts as well...
