Sunrise Bakery, Lexington, Kentucky
Limited Hours, Maximum Appeal: Lexington's Best Bakery
Sunrise Bakery, located on the corner of Main & Limestone in downtown Lexington, Kentucky, is hardly ever open for business; you can only get their beloved pastries three times a week. Although this limited time slot may be difficult to navigate, it's worth the effort. This place serves the best cheese danish in Lexington. In addition to this delectable dish, they serve a variety of pastries, cookies, and sandwiches on their fresh bread. They're not slacking on the coffee side of things, either; they serve a few different strands of Lexington's Own Magic Beans Coffee Roasters, now owned and operated by the folks over at A Cup of Common Wealth.

Daily Offerings Coffee Roastery aka The Roastery, Lexington, Kentucky
Third-Wave Coffee in the Heart of Southern Charm
Daily Offerings is a personal favorite of mine, and amongst other Lexington millennials. Serving beautifully crafted espresso drinks (roasted in-house!), brewed coffee and tea to order, and a plethora of gluten-free treats, this sleekly designed shop is the perfect place to visit for a mid-afternoon pick-me-up. Located in the heart of Lexington's downtown (E. Main Steet), there are very few reasons to say no to this place!

Ponyride, Detroit, Michigan
An Incubator for a Successful Co-Working Space
A foreclosed warehouse has been reborn as a thriving mix of co-working units and studio spaces to give up-and-coming businesses affordable rent to produce local goods and provide local jobs. This is what defines the mission of Ponyride. In Detroit's Corktown section, Ponyride houses companies and entrepreneurs who are as diverse as their goods and services: metal work, coffee, clothing, housewares, music, and even balms for beards. One current tenant, The Empowerment Plan, trains and employs the homeless as seamstresses to assemble interchangeable coats that can be turned into sleeping bags and given to the needy. The public can visit Ponyride on Wednesday afternoons. Just remember that businesses are at work, so quietly observe!

Dead Sea Panoramic Complex, Madaba, Jordan
Dead Sea Panoramic Complex
With the environmentally fragile Dead Sea shrinking, a swim—or more accurately a float—and mud bath in the lowest point in the world is a must on a Jordan trip. Several lookout points off the main road reveal a watery Death Valley type of rugged landscape with scaly salt crystal formations clinging to cliff sides. Opened in 2006, the Dead Sea Panoramic Complex includes a museum on local geology, history and the environment, as well as a restaurant.

Red Cave, Ma'an Governorate, Jordan
Red Cave
Sure, there is outdoor dining at Red Cave restaurant near the main Petra gate. But not eating indoors somewhat defeats the purpose of this cavernous Bedouin restaurant, which is cool on a hot day, and warm in winter. Grilled lamb or traditional poultry dishes are just the pickup after a long day trekking Petra.

Hashem, Amman, Jordan
Hashem
The falafel restaurant Hashem is as basic as it gets, an institution that hasn’t changed much since it opened in the mid-fifties. Visitors flock here to sit on plastic chairs in the busy alleyway to dine and drink mint tea. It’s a spectacle just watching the chickpea balls fry.

Wild Jordan Cafe
You might not expect a nature conservancy to host a fine restaurant, but the royally-supported Wild Jordan center’s Cafe is a hit. It’s not just healthy and sustainable Arabic and international foods that draw locals and travelers, but great window and deck views over the capital city’s citadel as well.

Royal Yacht Club
Aqaba’s posh citizens come to the Royal Yacht Club, but so can you. Diners savor an expansive mix of Mediterranean, Arab, and Asian cuisine inside a light, bright interior with wooden tables. Outdoors, diners may want to linger given the sunny ambience of the deck seating right on the marina.

Jordan may be an unusual place for a wine bar and cafe themed on the explorer DeSoto but it’s all in good fun. The light wood interior resembles a ship hull, while the outdoor deck with wooden chairs and tables overlooking the Tala Bay marina makes for a casual travel break over small bites.

Mount Nebo
The way up is windy, but the views of the Dead Sea and desert from 2,700 foot-high Mount Nebo are spectacular, and the history even more impressive: It was here where Moses saw the Promised Land. The pilgrimage site has a monastery and small church with mosaics of hunting scenes. Nearby, Bethany Beyond the Jordan where the baptism of Jesus by John the Baptist took place became a UNESCO world heritage site in 2015.

Madaba
It’s all about ancient mosaics in the market town of Madaba where on the floor of the Byzantine church of Saint George two million colored stones were used to render the Holy Land. Fine details of fish and a gazelle hunted by a lion stand out in the Madaba Map created in the 6th-century. The Hammamat Ma’in hot springs lie under a nearby waterfall in the hills off the Dead Sea.

Karak Castle, Al Karak, Jordan
Karak Castle
It’s boggling how in such a barren environment that early 12th-century Crusaders engineered the massive Karak hilltop castle. While a museum inside tells the story of the stronghold, perhaps the moat, arrow slits, and dungeons best illustrate the Hollywood-worthy struggles between crusaders and the sultan Saladin. Less well-preserved, the nearby 12th-century castle called Shobak lies at an elevation of 4,400 feet and is known for carved inscriptions by Mameluke soldiers.

Jerash Ruins
Once you’ve sighted the well-preserved Forum and the gorgeous Hadrian’s Arch you’d think you’re in Rome proper at the enormous complex of Jerash. The site, just a short jaunt up the highway from Amman, holds some of the finest Roman ruins in the Middle East, which were sent into decline by an 8th-century earthquake. For those looking for a little entertainment, gladiator fights and chariot shows are put on at certain hours.
