Indiana to Cali roadtrip
Collected by Nicole Westra
Hike, bike, or ride at your leisure up through Rocky Mountain National Park in Estes Colorado. For photographers, I recommend taking Trail Ridge Road for its vast opportunity to stop off and take pictures of beautiful views. The trip begins in the...
Mt Evans, Colorado 80439, USA
This is a bit touristy, but it's such a beautiful spot, I would highly recommend it. You can either drive or hike to the top of Mt Evans, which is just a short distance west of Denver. Besides the gorgeous views from the top, it's a fantastic...
1805 N 30th St, Colorado Springs, CO 80904, USA
Garden of the Gods is a geologic wonderland on the west side of Colorado Springs at the foot of Pikes Peak. It's easily accessed from I-25, the main highway that runs along Colorado’s Front Range and connects Pueblo, Colorado Springs, Castle Rock,...
Piney Lake, Colorado, USA
The Upper Piney trail is about a 12-mile roundtrip hike through aspen and evergreen trees. You can cut it in half by turning around at the picturesque waterfall about 3 miles in. Beyond the falls the trail gets steeper the closer you get to Upper...
1634 18th St, Denver, CO 80202, USA
You've got two options: a drink at Wynkoop Brewing Company, or a wander through the Denver Modern Art Museum. I chose wrong. It took half a dozen pints of Cowtown Milk Stout to wash away the memory of that museum's dreadful third floor exhibition....
1695 Platte St, Denver, CO 80202, USA
Have you ever tried a Graham Cracker porter? Well, you should. It's surprisingly mild— despite its dark hue—with hints of vanilla and mulled spices. And it's only available at the Denver Beer Co. The brewery serves along with other delish...
Crested Butte, CO 81224, USA
Just because this small mountain town has only one stoplight doesn’t mean it can’t serve up some delicious food. For tasty and fast Mexican food, there’s Teocalli Tamale right on the main drag, Elk Street. For hot and cold drinks...
Rim Trail S, Colorado, USA
A fun hike or mountain bike trail is the Rim Trail. Even though there are two places to hop on the trail, I personally recommend starting at the side near the Snowmass Mall off Divide Road. The trail is a series of tame switchbacks that traverses...
Willow Lake, Colorado 81611, USA
Most people that backpack in the Maroon Bells Wilderness Area usually either go over West Maroon Pass to Crested Butte or go over Buckskin Pass and camp at Snowmass Lake. A lesser known lake is Willow Lake. With fewer visitors, this is a secluded...
Being in nature is being in my happy place. The US' National Parks provide plenty of unspoiled nature. The Rocky Mountain National Park is huge, beautiful and abundant with wild life. It's a pleasure to go and make all your senses happy. If you...
3498 Riverside Dr, Tulsa, OK 74105, USA
Tulsa's River Parks is a seemingly endless mix of parks and trails spanning one part of Tulsa. The bikes trails are mostly paved and there are multiple scenic spots along the trails. The fountain in the picture is near what is called The...
Tulsa Expo Center, 4145 E 21st St, Tulsa, OK 74114, USA
The 76 foot tall Golden Driller was originally built, and temporarily displayed for the 1953 International Petroleum Exposition then permanently constructed in 1966 for the same event as a tribute to the men of the petroleum industry. There is...
11 N 4th St, St. Louis, MO 63102, USA
Beneath the St. Louis Arch is a wonderful underground museum, a key part of the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial run by the National Park Service. It is not well known even to people in St. Louis. Totally below ground beneath the Arch itself,...
736 S Broadway, St. Louis, MO 63102, USA
The food, drinks, and environment at Broadway Oyster Bar are favorites among visitors and locals. Located by the ballpark, the grilled oysters, Crawfish Mona can't be beat. Look forward to great food and hearing the Blues every night.
