Road Trip Summer 2013
Collected by Jennifer T.
Not a terribly exciting photo but a really cool - literally - place. We visited in summer when it was very hot and we went down to this spot several times because of the constant cool air that came out of the cave here. Also it was hard to get any...
636 Massachusetts St, Lawrence, KS 66044, USA
Free State Brewing Company is one of my favorite places in Lawrence, Kansas. Located on Mass St., the pub offers a full dining menu as well as a variety of their own microbrews (whose names typically reflect some aspect of Kansas history, like Ad...
2601, 1235 6th Ave N, Nashville, TN 37208, USA
Don't miss Monell's when you are in Nashville. It's only about a mile out of downtown and serves some of the best Southern cooking in a Victorian-style house. The fried chicken is a staple along with many classic sides and banana pudding for...
453 Allied Dr, Nashville, TN 37211, USA
URP has been turning out the vinyl since 1949. Fascinating tours offered on Fridays reveal the mysterious process of manufacturing records, and include a frozen-in-the-1960s suite built for Motown clients in the days prior to desegregation. Check...
1000 Main St, Nashville, TN 37206, USA
One of East Nashville’s first locally-sourced restaurants, Marche has long been a superb neighborhood spot for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Featuring French Country inspired cuisine, the menu also features smartly curated beer and wine lists and...
St. Louis, MO 63102, USA
This shot was taken looking straight down and then westward over St. Louis from the top of the Gateway Arch. (If you look at the bottom corners of the photo, you'll see the two bases of this audacious structure, 640 ft/192m below.) The city is...
1 Fine Arts Dr, St. Louis, MO 63110, USA
The Saint Louis Art Museum is one of the most attractive and interesting art museums in the country—inside and out. Best of all, admission is free every day. Located inside beautiful Forest Park (which offers a host of its own free activities...
Crossville, TN 38571, USA
About twenty years ago, landscaper Horace Burgess felt a call from God to build the world's largest tree house. I can't say that what he built is the world's largest, but it's definitely impressive. The house is built around half a dozen trees and...
Hot Springs, AR, USA
I'm not exaggerating when I tell you this is the best cupcake on earth. At this cleverly titled shop in Spa City, equally clever cupcakes are dreamed up by the sweetest woman alive. My favorite treat, the lavender lemon cupcake, is dusted with...
1285 Petit Jean Mountain Rd, Morrilton, AR 72110, USA
If you like hiking, Arkansas is paradise. One of my favorite trails goes deep into a canyon at Petit Jean State Park and ends at Cedar Falls. When it rains in the spring, the falls change from a trickle to a cascade.
Hot Springs, AR, USA
Hot Springs, Arkansas, is known for its bathhouses, gangster past, unique residents, and quartz crystals. The citizens have a love affair with minerals, and there are rock shops everywhere. Crystal Springs Gallery isn't a rock shop. It's more of...
245 SW Breckenridge Ln, Fort White, FL 32038, USA
Tubing down the Ichetucknee has been a rite of passage in Florida for years, but lately I've met more and more people who have never been. A group of friends and I went on a trip and it was a blast. We camped at the Ichetucknee Springs Campground...
