1 W 67th St, New York, NY 10023, USA
The Leopard at des Artistes is more than a restaurant. It's an Upper West Side landmark, a Manhattan treasure and genuine New York classic. It was once Cafe des Artistes, a restaurant where luminaries from the worlds of art, politics and...

If you can get yourself out there, the backside of Catalina is most beautiful during the late fall and early spring. The lighting is just right, the weather is perfect and it is beauuutiful. Whales Tail splits Little Harbor and Shark Harbor and...
Twin Peaks, San Francisco, CA, USA
The best views of San Francisco are from the top of Twin Peaks, the two hills that are located in the geographic center of the city. Only from Twin Peaks can you get a 360-degree view of the entire city. If you are lucky, on a clear day you can...
67 West St, Brooklyn, NY 11222, USA
Add the Palmer Trading Company to your when-I-go-to-New-York-I-always-have-to-stop-at list. Boston natives David and Willy have pulled off Americana just right with their Soho store. I would have walked out with more than just a tie had I not been...
Pearl St, Boulder, CO, USA
I love living in Boulder because you can always head downtown and catch a show. Seen here: the "Zip Code Guy" does his thing, wow-ing locals and tourists alike with his inside geography skills. The Pearl Street pedestrian mall is filled with...

1600 38th St, Boulder, CO 80301, USA
This pint of American Stout at Fate Brewing Co., one of the newest craft brew pubs in Boulder, was delicious, strong, and smooth. There are legendary breweries up and down the front range, in and out of Denver, and plenty of people who plan their...
3980 Broadway, Boulder, CO 80304, USA
Or the best lunch, for that matter. I like to belly up to the counter early in the morning, when the rising sun blasts into the cozy eatery, and the servers rush to lower the blinds. I nod yes for coffee, then order from the hash bar (smoked pork...
Baseline Rd & 9th St, Boulder, CO 80302, USA
If you visit Boulder, hiking is a central part of the experience. There are many trails that criss-cross Chautauqua Park, but if you hike the ones under NIST you will find them to be much less crowded. Take the Table Mesa exit off the 36 Highway...

20 Lakeview Dr, Nederland, CO 80466, USA
This is a cinch to recommend. Nederland is a fun little mountain town about 20 miles up Boulder Canyon from Boulder, and on the way to Eldora Mountain Ski Resort. It's an easy half-day trip from Boulder and well worth it. For $1 a ride, your kids...
1397 Pearl St, Boulder, CO 80302, USA
I don't use the word "best" lightly, but Salvaggio's deserves it. For decades, they've been serving up the best classic sandwiches in Boulder at their three locations—a kiosk on Pearl St. in front of the courthouse, a shop at 26th and Pearl St....
San Francisco, CA, USA
There are so many fabulous places in the city that you can go to see and photograph San Francisco and the entire bay area. Some of these are open for the public while others may only be available to guests staying at that particular hotel. So if...
121 E 17th St, New York, NY 10003, USA
