Musical Instrument Museum - MIM, Phoenix, Arizona
Visit the World's Only Global Instrument Museum
Billing itself as the only museum in the world dedicated to the display of global musical instruments, Phoenix's Musical Instrument Museum, or MIM, opened in 2010. In the few years since, it has become one of the city's most popular attractions. MIM boasts a collection of more than 15,000 instruments representing every country in the world. Displayed in one of more than 360 exhibits, the collection also features instruments of some famous artists, including Pablo Casals, John Lennon, and Taylor Swift. Even passionate music lovers will be likely to see an instrument they've never heard of before, and those who are lucky might hear some of them played by visiting artists. The museum has hosted renowned musicians from dozens of genres and countries. The museum's Fall 2014 Concert Series includes performances by The Blind Boys of Alabama and Robert Earl Keen, among many others. Photo: Tom Weiskopf/Flickr

Cervecería Rámuri, Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
Cool down with a Craft Beer
Baja Brewing Company may have been the first brewery in Los Cabos, and for a long time, it was also the only one. Recently, it was joined by Cervecería Ramurí, a local craft brewer. Stouts, porters, pale ales, and even a hefeweizen are on tap here, and can be served with one of the appetizers or entrees turned out by the kitchen, including handmade lobster ravioli.

Devils Tower National Monument

Devils Tower National Monument, Devils Tower, Wyoming
Overcast Views of Devils Tower
The path is paved and equipped for even the most leisure-savvy of hikers, but what made this experience so different from others was the weather. It had just rained in the rolling hills of north eastern Wyoming, draping the scenery with a thin layer of fog and muting the natural colors to an overcast hue. Then, within the fog was Devils Tower. Jutting up from the countryside the monument gave off an ominous and eerie effect, as though something dark loomed there. It reminded me of the 1940's classic Disney movie, Fantasia, and I shuffled to Night on Bald Mountain by Modest Mussorgsky, an iconic piece featured in the film. Armed with a raincoats, my father and I set out in the mist for the 2 mile walk around its base. About halfway through our hike we could see (and hear) the lightning and thunder rolling in across the plains, a scene that may discourage some, but excited us. When the rain finally started to drip down, it felt like we were exploring a secret and forbidden place rich with Native American history and forgotten by time.
