Save Place
15046 NM-75, Peñasco, NM 87553, USA
We first spied this mural be-decked building during a winter drive to Taos from Santa Fe on the High Road. An old stick-on lettered sign with an arrow announced "Sugar Nymphs", pointing towards another door with a sign that said simply "Theater"....
Save Place
1800 Wekiwa Cir, Apopka, FL 32712, USA
My favorite local escape is canoeing at Wekiwa Springs State Park. Get there early to rent a canoe before it gets crowded. Experience the lush greenery at canoe-level, along with egrets, turtles, herons, and (occasionally) alligators. Later,...

425 Island Ave, San Diego, CA 92101, USA
Bice is an upscale dining experience where the chef uses mostly locally sourced food for his creations. Most of the cheese comes from small Italian farms and they carry an extensive Italian and Californian wine menu. There are several types of...

2265 S 3rd St, Memphis, TN 38109, USA
I've included the question mark because, to be fair, it was the only BBQ I've tried in Memphis. But it was certainly sold to us on that premise: a friend of mine had been told that, in what claims to be the BBQ capital of the world, there were 2...

1242 N Main St, Shamrock, TX 79079, USA
You can't actually fuel up here - or at least you couldn't when we stopped in summer 2013. But the beautiful and unique U Drop Inn cafe and Conoco gas station has been lovingly restored by the City of Shamrock, and it's worth veering off the I-40...
Save Place
Silver Lake, Los Angeles, CA, USA
In Los Angeles, the cliché is that people drive one block to get a soda. But there are lots of staircases hidden in the hills of L.A. In Silver Lake, I like a two-and-a-half mile loop of stairs known as the Music Box. Parts remind me of...
Save Place
2200 W Lafayette Blvd, Detroit, MI 48216, USA
Under the spectre of the Ambassador Bridge to Canada and the ghostly Michigan Central Station, Green Dot Stables beckons patrons from the sunshine into an atmosphere reminiscent of your grandparents' basement, in a good way. Try...
Save Place
9669 S Santa Monica Blvd, Beverly Hills, CA 90210, USA
I was really craving Apfelstrudel a few months ago and came across this delightful Austrian gem in the middle of Beverly Hills. Much to my surprise, everything from the decor to the taste was steeped in authenticity. It only helps that the chef is...
Save Place
2495 E Washington Blvd, Pasadena, CA 91104, USA
Carmela is Pasadena's favorite ice cream shop. Drive by in the evening, and you'll see a crowded store front with happy ice-cream-eaters overflowing onto the sidewalk. I love their unique flavor combinations; they even offer classes if you're...
